Two girls survive a terrible flood in the Tasmanian bush and are rescued by a pair of Tasmanian tigers who raise them in the wild. Their story of survival is remarkable, as they adapt to the life of the tiger, learning to hunt and to communicate without the use of human language. When they are discovered and returned to civilization, neither can adapt to being fully human after their extraordinary experience.

From the back cover: Two girls, Two tigers, Four years in the wild. Children raised by wildness, will they survive the transition when they are "rescued" by members of their own species? Is civilization a healthier kinder environment? What happens when we tame our natures?

A fresh take on the "human child raised by animals" story. The part of this read that spoke to me the most was what happened after the girls had been found. In a time when our grasp on psychology was sketchy at best, what is the ethically sound way to handle such severe trauma?
