About this book

In 1958, after writing several articles on Tasmanian history, Janet Somerville began her major work, but died before it could be published. Fifty years later, her manuscript is still novel and topical, proving a unique perspective on the discovery and early settlement of Tasmanian as seen through the eyes of a botanist. Janet Somerville's manuscript bridges history and botany and will be fascinating reading for all interested in the natural history and exploration of Tasmania.
