Letters To My Grandchildren




A delightful book written by Jane Deans in 1888, telling her grandchildren about life from when she arrived at Riccarton in 1852 until when she wrote the letters in 1888.  A story of love, tragedy, hardship, entrepreneurship and hard work from the very start of a new life in the new town of Christchurch.

The Letters were first published by the Riccarton Bush Trust in 1923 with subsequent editions in 1971 and 1995. In late 2018 a fourth edition was published. The enhancements include a larger font, over 100 pictures, maps and drawings, two family trees and a timeline to provide context to the reader.
