The Englishman Edward Ward arrived with the first Canterbury Pilgrims in 1850 at the age of 25. He kept a detailed and entertaining record of the voyage to New Zealand in the Charlotte Jane and his first six months in the new colony. Edward tragically died in a boating accident in Lyttleton Harbour, leaving behind three small books which contained his journal and observations of people who later rose to fame in the settlement. First published in 1950 in a limited print run, this edition has been economically reprinted for the modern reader.
