There were thirty children aboard the 'Quetta'. That was the worst - the loss of the children. On a hot February night in 1890, the British East India passenger liner 'Quetta' struck an uncharted rock in Torres Strait and sank in three minutes. Over 150 men, women

and children lost their lives - but among the survivors was an unidentified baby girl. A story of tragedy and survival by multi-award-winning author Gary Crew, illustrated by the internationally acclaimed artist/illustrator Bruce Whatley. 234 x 250mm., pp. 32, colour illustrations throughout. Square hard cover, illustrated board covers. FINE
