The author relates the journey out via the Panama Canal and across the Pacific, with a stop over at Pitcairn Island. Once in New Zealand she records having travelled widely: tramping, climbing, camping, fishing, exploring and staying some weeks in her home town of Gisborne.
Chapter VIII, Christmas in New Zealand, briefly describes her visit to Napier and the effects of the Hawke's Bay earthquake. This book presents an interesting picture of New Zealand in the 1930s, with information about history, industry, agriculture and attractions for tourist.
