Caroline Chisholm

Front Cover
Melbourne University Press, 1996 - Australia - 208 pages
Caroline Chisholm's remarkable and hard-won achievements live again in this book which describes her indomitable spirit, her propensity for hard work and as much of her private life as can be reconstructed. Her commitment during the 1830s and 1840s led to the establishment of a Female Immigrants' Home, the encouragement of family immigration, the fight for better conditions on immigrant ships, and practical help for some thirty thousand immigrants and settlers.
