AbstractHistoryArchive Description

According to the author's preface, this is 'a simple and every-day account of the kind of life that an emigrant to either Canada or Australia is likely to encounter'.

The exemplary Fletcher family travels to the British colonies, Canada and Australia. The narrator gives a detailed account of colonial life, and Canadian and Australian environments, flora and fauna. Some of the information contained in the book appears to constitute 'advice to travellers'.
