'This book was written by a German woman in 1793 just five years after the settlement at Sydney Cove. It is the first novel written with an Australian background and gives great insight into how the people of Europe envisaged the founding of Australia.

The microfilm of the German original of the novel as well as the reproductions of the two portraits of Therese Huber have been provided by the Niedersachsische Staatsund Universitatsbibliothek in Gottingen.'
