New Tales of Euterpe: The Star of India as a British Emigrant Ship

The Star of India is the world's best-preserved sailing ship to have carried emigrants across the world's oceans to new homes. Under her original name of Euterpe, she carried emigrants to New Zealand and Australia from about 1870 to about 1890. This unique book contains a fascinating, previously unpublished 1879 emigrant diary of great literary and historical merit, and other articles including a rare account written by a common seaman who later became a pioneering writer of horror fiction.
