Description
On 7 December 1863, two ships arrived at the Lyttelton Heads with very different stories of their journey from England. The Bahia quickly sailed into port, while the Brother's Pride was ordered to raise the yellow flag and go into quarantine. One ship had healthy passengers while the other had endured 46 deaths due to illness, setting an unenviable record at the port of Lyttelton. Using historic archives, passenger lists, passenger biographies and the official enquiry into the Brother's Pride tragedy, this book is a great read for those with ancestors on the ship and those interested in early New Zealand history.
