Summary

The haunting story of the extraordinary Aboriginal woman behind the myth of 'the last Tasmanian Aborigine'. The name of Truganini is vaguely familiar to most Australians as 'the last of her race'. She has become an international icon for a monumental tragedy: the extinction of the original people of Tasmania within her lifetime.
