Hastings reveals a real treasure trove of personal histories. If history is indeed made by the collected stories of individuals, then this is an important addition to our knowledge of the origins of Pakeha society. Hastings has done a fine job in researching his material and retelling this social history. Over the Mountains of the Sea is a lively, well-illustrated and very readable book that draws on shipboard diaries and archival sources to give a vivid picture of the voyage out to New Zealand during the crucial Vogel period.

He convincingly shows the ship as a microcosm of the society British migrants brought to these islands.
