Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace tells the inspiring true story of Grace Bussell, a teenage girl who is thrust into an extraordinary situation when a steamship runs aground near her home on the south-west coast of Australia in 1876.  Renowned author Stephanie Owen Reeder uses witness accounts and historical documents to bring this compelling story alive for primary school readers.

When the Bussells hear the news that the Georgette has run aground on the coast near their home, Grace leaps on her horse, riding for an hour to get to the sinking ship. There she and Sam, the family’s stockman, gallop into the wild surf to save the remaining crew and passengers.
