Published here for the first time, are the letters and manuscripts written by Jane Dodds and her family during the first two decades of the Swan River Colony.
While revealing the character and life of a most remarkable woman, these documents give answers to questions hitherto of historical debate. The most significant example is the mystery of the founding of Rockingham. Jane and her family travel on the Rockingham and she provides a detailed description of the journey and the storm that wrecked the vessel in Cockburn Sound. (book flap)
