This book is very straightforward about the depredations of the encroaching colonists on the indigenous peoples of Tasmania, as well as on the flora and fauna. Written some seventy years after the events depicted, the authors depict a paradise lost, an indigenous people decimated, by thoughtless (or worse, opportunistic) settlers.

This longer novel, over 300 pages in its paperback format, is a worthwhile reading experience, especially if you are a fan of historical fiction.

I suggest you look up 'Thylacine' (the real name of the Tasmanian tiger) in Wikipedia before you read the book! If you live on the other side of the world, like I do, you probably don't know much about these animals and their history, and what led them to extinction in the mid-twentieth century.

Love the cover! That's really what I imagine Dingo and Dash look like!
