About this book:

A fascinating slice of South African maritime history investigated by four children doing “detective work”.

Based on the true unsolved mystery dating back to 1909, the disappearance of the steamer remains one of the most baffling nautical mysteries of all time.

The author has woven a story around the historical facts, involving present day children doing research of their own.

“She has taken a tale she heard many years ago, and turned it into an adventure for kids, a story of intellectual detection. She has wound together history, both national and personal, with a sense of family and childhood adventure….This is a storyteller's book … with a fine sense of time and place. It is delightful. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.” Prof. Anton Harber , Professor of Media Studies, Wits University.
