"Martins Bay, north of Milford Sound at the mouth of the Hollyford river, was the most isolated settlement in New Zealand when Alice McKenzie's parents took their young family there in 1876. Even today, nearly a hundred years since, the region is remote, peopled by a few white baiters, fishermen, hunters, and trampers. The McKenzies endured severe hardships that are outside the experience of the modern New Zealander. The author describes, for instance, the family's ordeal when her mother was expecting a child during the 'great flood' of 1878. Her father went to bring help and, forced back by a storm-lashed lake and swollen streams, he found his wife on her bed in the flooded house with their two-hour-old son in her arms."
