The Heroism of a Maori woman

Active selection:    
The Heroism of a Maori Woman.  Risking her own life, Huria struggled through the boiling sea to run a line from the stranded brig to the shore.  Then, when the line was secure, she and two Maoris helped the ship's crew and its one passenger as they, exhausted and half-drowned, struggled along the makeshift lifeline.  Artwork loaned to Look and Learn for scanning by The Gallery of Illustration.
