"This year Mrs. Sanford varies her usual method and takes the children she tells us about on a long sea voyage in her father's ship." The Churchman vol 40 December 1879. The experiences of a family of five children, their pets, and their friends on board, on a memorable voyage to the West Indies and South America. Folk tales are told along the way, but this is not a typical late 19th c family travelogue. By a prolific writer of good family stories for small and middle aged children.
