An Australian professor is chasing the interesting history of an elusive woman who lived more than 100 years ago. Retired law professor Ian Leader-Elliott picked up a book at a country town street stall called 'Truth, Love, Joy, Or, the Garden of Eden and its Fruits ', written by an early Taranaki settler, Eliza Mary King. Written in 1874, it tells the story of a woman who was fought for women's rights at that time.
