Cover image


Shortly after the 'Mimosa' had anchored in New Bay on 27 July 1865, Captain George Pepperrell, the surgeon Thomas Greene, and some half a dozen of the male passengers, decided to disembark and inspect the land. It is said that Hugh Hughes (Cadfan Gwynedd) was the first of the emigrants to set foot on Patagonian soil.
