 Dager of the Tasman Empire is a powerful story about a boy that has a hard life. This book is so easy to read and has a wonderful message. I believe that more people should read this book. Family comes first, is the message that I took from this wonderful book. Schapansky is able to create a story that can be hard to write, and execute it properly.

Ruthlessly torn away from his family at the tender age of three; subsequently sold as a slave, the little boy endures unbelievable brutality. 

Thankful for his nightly dreams about magical, faraway places, and the constant companionship of his equally neglected farmyard friends, he survives. 

Two agonizing years pass; he receives a mysterious message, and learns that he has a family that loves him. He also discovers that he has a name, and that his family has never given up hope of his eventual return. With resolve that he didn't know he had, the little boy puts up the fight of his life, to return to his home.
