A lively and personal narrative of pioneering settlement in remote South Westland, just north of Milford Sound. The author's father took his family to settle at Martins Bay in 1874 and she succeeds in conveying the reality of pioneering. Here is a story of hardship and endurance quite outside modern experience. First published in 1947, this edition has been revised by her grand-daughter, and includes extra material from Alice's personal diaries and papers.
