"“Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today's world do not have.”
Deep in the heart of Tasmania, Australia, an American born girl, Riley Obrien, stumbles upon a helpless animal that was once thought to be extinct: the rare and beautiful Thylacine. She takes in the orphan despite the consequences of raising a wild animal. Later, as an adult, Riley continues her work protecting the thylacine from further destruction from man. And yet, while she accomplishes more than she thought she would, she still finds the strength to get through the other obstacles such as love, war, and her worry for her birth country.
This is a story of survival, love, hope, determination, and patriotism. And of how just one girl can save and protect an entire species forever.
