From the cover: “How happy the men of the Toogee were, on their island home! Brown-skinned, healthy and active, they ran barefoot on the sands or in the bush. The advent of the white man marked the end of the Toogee people's idyllic existence. The true and tragic story of what became of these Aborigine tribes of the west coast of Tasmania, and of Mathinna, the daughter of the last of their chieftains, is related with rare iasight by an author with a unique knowledge of the Tasmanian bush.”
