Inspired by the life of Jemmy Button - a native of Tierra del Fuego who was brought into England in the mid-1800s to be 'educated' and 'civilised' by British missionaries and explorers - this book illustrates Jemmy's adventures in England, his bizarre and extraordinary encounters there, his experience as an outsider in a new land and culture, and his return back home.

This book focuses on the theme of distance and homesickness.

With Valerio's precision, and Jennifer's primitive style, such collaboration has resulted in a story unlike any other.
