About this title

Synopsis:

James McGeoch's headstone, which can be found at the Symonds Street cemetery in Auckland, New Zealand, carries a simple sentiment in the Scottish dialect that resonates with first generation migrants everywhere: "It was hard to die frae hame'. This book is an investigation into the experiences of death and mourning among nineteenth-century Scottish migrants to New Zealand. It is simultaneously an investigation of deathways, a migration study, a consideration of the working class experience, and a tentative venture into the history of emotion. Using a diverse range of sources, including New Zealand coroners' reports, gravestone inscriptions, and personal autobiographical accounts as written in journals, diaries and letters, this study highlights the complexity and variety of migrants' experiences of death and attempts to uncover the multiple meanings of these experiences.

About the Author:

Debra Powell is completing doctoral studies in history at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. She is currently researching the history of infanticide and child-homicide in nineteenth century New Zealand.
