Text and original paintings by Gainor W Jackson.

"SETTLEMENT BY SAIL is a commemoration of 19th 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. Original paintings by the artist/author - published here for the first time - encapsulate those beautiful ships. An informative text and many contemporary illustrations graphically describe the conditions in 19th century Britain which motivated millions 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 navigation route, the perils of the voyage, and the history of the early shipping lines. He lists the founding ships of New Zealand's main settlement, and describes the role of the Wakefields and the colonising companies in our early development as a nation. The superb full-colour paintings by the author make this an attractive and original gift for all interested in the sea."
