Affiliation Notes

  • Nineteenth-Century Travel Writing

    A. Russell's travel narrative was written as a journal during his voyage round the world. The narrative moves between geographical descriptionsof the colonies, a nautical adventure, and an emigrant guide that provided an introduction to Aboriginal customs. The work was punctuated with practical hints to potential emigrants. Travelling between New South Wales, Van Diemen's Land, and Victoria, Russell described their respective populations, societies, amusements, climates, and infrastructure, as well as his experiences of the trials and excitements of travel.
