Settlers - Being Extracts from the Journals and Letters of Early Colonists in Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand by John Hale
Fellow of Jesus College, Oxford Here, in the words of pioneer men and women, we have a vivid picture of life during the first decades of settlement in Canada and Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. In these letters and diaries we hear what made our ancestors decide to emigrate, their hopes and fears as they crossed the sea, their reactions to the wilderness beyond. We can follow the progress of settlement from the blazing of the first trails through the forest to the building of farms and the laying-out of cities before long to be famous.
