This book was written ten years ago and first published in 2010. The recent publication of Pure Republic, which covers some of the same ground, prompted me to revise the original book. Some material has been updated or corrected and there is some new information. Parts, which wherefore appropriate to Pure Republic, have been discarded. The book is now more focussed on the creation of the new town and community and specifically concentrates of the years from 1838 to 1860.
The new edition is printed with colour illustrations and is issued in paperback (ISBN: 9781909054004). priced at £11.99 and hardcover (ISBN: 9781909054578), at a retail price of £20.
