Women in colonial Australia were usually isolated from family and friends and life was harsh and dangerous. Many wrote diaries and letters to reflect on their new lives and keep in touch with their loved ones. This collection of extracts from colonial women's letters and diaries includes writing from such well-known women as Elizabeth Macarthur, Eliza Marsden and Georgiana Molloy as well as lesser-known early settlers.
