In 1876, 16-year-old Grace Bussell and Sam Isaacs, an Aboriginal stockman, risked everything to save 50 passengers and crew from certain peril. This is the extraordinary tale of the SS Georgette shipwreck, brought to life in vivid detail through an evocative retelling. Sam, Grace and the Shipwreck is a fictionalised narrative of historical events that shines a light on the remarkable bravery of these two individuals and offers a captivating tribute to Bussell’s legacy as ‘Australia’s own Grace Darling’.
