Description - Over the Wide and Trackless Sea by Megan Hutching

Facing danger, despair, back breaking work and heart breaking loss and loneliness, the women who forged a new life in New Zealand in colonial times have never been celebrated, and their stories, with a few notable exceptions, have not been widely sheared. Best selling historian Megan Hutching has brought together the stories of a dozen women of all walks of life, whose personal tales of triumph and adversity make compelling reading, and whose contribution helped forge the character of contemporary Aotearoa, where their descendants owe their lives, and their lifestyles, to the sacrifices and strength of these women of the late 1800s.

Author Biography - Megan Hutching

Megan Hutching has produced six books of oral histories of the Second World War, in the 'New Zealanders Remember' series, including most recently, Last Line of Defence: New Zealanders Remember the War at Home. Her first major piece of research was on women opposed to war in New Zealand in the early twentieth century, and this sparked her abiding interest in writing about the extraordinary lives of ordinary women.
