Fraser Island, 1882. The population of the Badtjala people is in sharp decline following a run of brutal massacres.

When German scientist Louis Muller offers to sail three Badtjala people - Bonny, Jurano and Dorondera - to Europe to perform to huge crowds, the proud and headstrong Bonny agrees, hoping to bring his people’s plight to the Queen of England.

Accompanied by Mullers bright, grieving daughter, Hilda, the group begins their journey to belle-époque Europe to perfom in Hamburg, Berlin, Paris and eventually London. While crowds in Europe are enthusiastic to see the unique dances, singing, fights and pole climbing from the oldest culture in the world, the attention is relentless, and the fascination of scientists intrusive. When disaster strikes, Bonny must find a way to return home.

A story of love, bravery, culture, and the fight against injustice, Paris Savages brings a little-known part of history to blazing life, from award-winning novelist Katherine Johnson.

Katherine Johnson

Katherine Johnson was born in Queensland and grew up alongside the fig-tree lined Brisbane River. At university she combined her two loves ? writing and biology ? graduating with both Arts and Science degrees, with honours in marine biology.

Katherine then moved to Tasmania where, after more than a decade working as a science journalist for the CSIRO and other organisations, she began writing fiction: stories of love, loss and resilience set against wild landscapes.

Her first novel, Pescador’s Wake (Fourth Estate) is set on the Southern Ocean, in South America and Tasmania. Her second, features northern Tasmania’s vast caves. She is now completing a PhD in creative writing at the University of Tasmania.

Katherine has travelled in Africa, Indonesia, Europe and Alaska. She lives on a cliff top overlooking the sea with her husband and two children. Her latest adventure was to wild south-western Tasmania by yacht.
