Summary
"... a commemoration of nineteenth century European immigration, and a remembrance of the sailing ships in which the early settlers trusted their lives over the 13,000 mile voyage from Britain: the longest sea route in the world ... An informative text and many contemporary illustrations graphically describe the conditions in 19th century Britain which motivated milliions to leave their loved ones in search of a new life. We read how New Zealand obtained its share of migrants. Gainor Jackson describes the outward voyage and privations of life aboard sailing ships, the navigational route, the perils of the voyage and the history of the early shipping lines. He lists the founding ships of New Zealand's main settlements, and describes the role of the Wakefields and the colonizing companies in our early development as a nation." -- Back cover
