"This is the vivid, personal story of a journey round the world - 'a proud place, peopled with men of positive quality ...' Joy Packer was more interested in the people of the new worlds she discovered with such enthusiasm than in the sights suggested by the guide books.
She sets out from Cape Town in a small twelve passenger cargo boat, sails up the east coast of Africa to Lourenco Marques, where the 'small world' of the ship alters course for Perth in Western Australia."
