Written and produced by John Harper and John Pagan, a Darling family member, whose concept of an illustrated book on her life has been realised from start to finish. Both could see the need for a new book about her, one that focuses attention on events beyond the famous rescue, to show the bigger picture and highlight many aspects of the story ignored by other writers, all adding to a remarkable, true account. Each page of the book features a stunning original watercolour by professional artist and Darling family descendant Moira Pagan, 28 stunning full page plates which add great richness and texture, bringing the book to life and  creating a truly cinematic story.
