The enterprising women on the Bussorah Merchant emigrant ship responded to advertisements which attracted them to migrate to far-away Australia. In contrast to convicts, these courageous women freely chose to make the long journey to the other side of the world.
Each woman’s story is told here and thoroughly investigates the lives of the brave women who boarded the Bussorah Merchant.
