They Saw a Thylacine by Justine Campbell and Sarah Hamilton

Out of the darkness, Justine Campbell and Sarah Hamilton conjure the ghost of one of Australia’s lost beauties, the thylacine. With all the suspense of a campfire story, these feisty, funny women weave a lyrical tale of adversity and extinction. For this thylacine tracker and this zoo keeper’s daughter, it’s a quest not just to protect a threatened creature, but themselves. Rebellious and gutsy, these women face life and fight to survive.
