Amazing Grace : an adventure at sea by Stephanie Reeder
Grace Bussell became involved in the rescue of passengers and crew from the stricken ship, S.S. Georgette. Grace and their stockman, Sam Isaacs , saddled up their horses and headed to Caldardup Bay near Redgate Beach where the S. S. Georgette was shipwrecked. Grace and Sam rode their horses down the rocky cliff face and into the raging surf, urging the frantic victims to grab hold, as they lead their horses back to shore. Grace and Sam would continue to ride back into ocean until everyone was safely on shore. Some of the passengers made it safety to shore on their own but Grace and Sam were responsible for saving many of the fifty survivors. The survivors were later taken to Wallcliffe where they were looked after by the Bussell family.
