Synopsis of book»

Australia, 1882. Following a series of brutal massacres, the population of the Badtjala people is in sharp decline. When German scientist Louis Müller offers to sail Bonny, Jurano and Dorondera to Europe to perform to huge crowds, Bonny agrees, hoping to bring news of his people’s plight to Queen Victoria. Accompanied by Müller’s bright daughter, Hilda, the group begin their journey to belle-époque Europe to perform in Berlin, Paris and eventually London.

But the attention from the hungry crowds is relentless and invasive, and the fascination of scientists physically intrusive. When disaster strikes and Bonny is stranded, he must somehow find his own way home.
