Raised in Tasmania, the author left for New Zealand in his early teens, keeping a journal of his sea voyage and his later adventures during the 1870s. Meredith writes with a surprisingly mature young person’s perspective on life to describe his work on various farms and then as a clerk in Parliament House. He provides some rare and humorous insights into the politicians of the day, Maori traditions, and farm management and practices. First published in 1935, this edition has been economically reprinted for the modern reader.
