The Lost Diamonds
of Killiecrankie is a piece of historical fiction set in the wilderness
of the Australian state of Tasmania.
a disillusioned art teacher who goes to a rugged part of Tasmania
to paint pictures of the mountains. He eventually becomes obsessed
by the local legend of lost treasure and the book then follows his
quest for the legendary lost diamonds.
is cleverly written, it incorporates a great deal of Tasmanian history
and many different text types as the story unfolds. However, we feel
that this book was a 'little too old for us'.In our opinion the book
is more appropriate to year 6 and 7 students.
