Beatrice Grimshaw, White Savage Simon

Beatrice Grimshaw. White Savage Simon. Sydney: N.S.W. Bookstall, 1919. Illustrations by Percy Lindsay.

Although she was born in Ireland and lived and worked in many parts of the world, it was her close association with New Guinea for which Beatrice Grimshaw (1871-1953) is best remembered.

She was the first European woman to ascend the Fly and Sepik Rivers and many of her books are set in New Guinea or the Pacific.
