Redemption of Truganini
"Australia! I've always wanted to go to Australia," Max, our teenage adventurer, responds to the prophet Isaenam's call. But this adventure will be different. "In Dreamtime, time is place," Monti, Max's Aboriginal mentor, explains to his shocked realization of how different. But it's more than just a different time and place. It's a new life, growing from infant to man in a 40,000 year old culture.
Interfering with the Aboriginal law, Max leaves his adopted mother's clan to accept an invitation to help Master Robinson and his beautiful Bruny Island assistant, Truganini, rescue the natives of Tasmania from the encroaching colonists.
But, in his travels, Max becomes a victim of the 19th century British convict colony. Rescued by Master Robinson, Max and his young convict comrades, Jonathan and Molly, acquire the help of the future political leaders in London, those charged to secure Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness for all mankind.
Anxiously returning to assist Master Robinson, Max is crushed by Truganini's survival approach: succumbing to the wicked desires of the sealers and whalers. Max now knows why he was sent to Australia: all in preparation, the metaphor for all past and future life's activity: The Redemption of Truganini.
