Lady Travellers. The Tourists of Early New Zealand. Bee Dawson. 2001 1st edition. Penguin, Auckland

The stories of the travels of 10 19th century women in NZ, ranging from Betsey Broughton who survived the burning of the ship “Boyd” to an Alpine climber

9 of these women can be described as early explorers and tourists
The 10th, Betsey Broughton, was only 2 when she came to NZ on the Boyd. Her mother was killed and eaten by Maori in Northland, and she remained in NZ for another 2 ½ years after that. Supposedly she can be labelled as a “traveller”

Old photos and repros of painting accompany the text, which contains interesting reading showing how some women lived

220pp; b/w and coloured photos; maps; bibliographies; s/covers; very good condition

19th century women were not usually a subject written about, as males dominated the era. This makes this book quite special
