This publication is a compilation of writings by numerous contributors throughout New Zealand. It records the experiences - often first-hand - of the pioneer women themselves and the part they played along with their husbands in the breaking in and development of the land and building of colonial communities. Concentrates on depicting the labours, relationships, dangers and experiences in a primitive land where many changes and adaptations were required to establish a new life in an often lonely and isolated environment.
Also covers immigration experiences as well as dealing with the locals both Pakeha and Maori, as well as the wreck of the Orpheus by a survivor. Contributors include Helen Wilson, Mrs T.R. Barrer, Mrs Flora Spurdle, Mrs T.H. Lowry, Mrs C. Benton, Mrs A. Forsyth, Miss B. Chaytor, Mrs J.D. Hall, Mrs J.F. Drake, Mrs W.H. Ward.
