May Vivienne - opera singer, widow, travel writer - embarked upon an epic journey of discovery throughout Western Australia in 1899-1900. Journeying alone, May recorded the life and times of the early Western Australian goldfields - the colour, the excitement and the men!


'Travels in Western Australia' published in 1901, was written at a time when the colony was astonishing the world with its riches. This classic work continues to fascinate readers of life on the Western Australian goldfields over a century ago.


Not limiting her writings to just about the goldfields, May also covers topics on Albany, Middleton Beach, regattas, whaling, Claremont, the zoo, smelting works, wildflowers, the Deepdene Caves, ploughing match, Bunbury and hundreds more topics.


Including the 96 photographs, this is one person's unique view of life in Western Australia at the beginning of the twentieth century.
