Written by T. Horton James in 1838 a short time after the settlement of the Colony of South Australia, the book describes and offers advice about the journey to Australia, detailing the daily routines on ships for well-to-do gentlemen. Hints are also given about particular things to be aware of, like the appetite being generally ravenous at sea and the consequences of eating twice as much as usual!

T. Horton James gives detailed descriptions about South Australia, debunking a lot of myths perpetrated by others. His description of landing at Port Adelaide makes for amusing reading.

On arrival he continued to give what appears to be sound advice to new emigrants who were settling in South Austrakua tho he was very pro New Zealand at the same time. A map of Port Lincoln is included along with a monthly calendar of gardening and agriculture.
