In 1829 Georgiana Molloy moved from the middle-class comfort of the English border country to an isolated wilderness on the opposite side of the world. The young bride and her husband, Captain John Molloy, were among a small party which founded the settlement of Augusta on Western Australia’s south-west coast. A pioneer of great courage and capacity, Georgiana was presented with seemingly overwhelming trials and hardships. But she was a woman who was never defeated by circumstance, and never ceased to find enjoyment and satisfaction in her life. One of her enduring legacies is her study and identification of much of the unique local flora. A vivid portrait of an extraordinary woman.
