About this object

"From a variety of sources, including the diaries of passengers on a number of emigrant ships - mostly sailing vessels but also a few steamships - the author has told the story largely in the words of the participants themselves, thus giving a unique insight into what life was like during the long voyage (up to five months) down the Atlantic, around the Cape of Good Hope and through the storms of the sourthern ocean to New Zealand"--Back cover.
