Description

Published to mark the 175th anniversary of the founding of Auckland. After helping find a harbour suitable for Governor Hobson's first capital, on 18 September 1840, Sarah was the only woman ashore for the flag-raising ceremony and regatta celebrating the birth of Auckland. Her surviving journals and letters brilliantly cover long voyages under sail, including several around Cape Horn, as well as Auckland's birth, and the personalities and politics of its early capital years.
