Journal of a Residence in Chile During the Year 1822, and a Voyage from Chile to Brazil in 1823

In 1821, Maria Dundas Graham sailed for South America on H.M.S. Doris, a ship sent to protect British mercantile interests in that volatile region. After her husband, the ship’s captain Thomas Graham, died en route, the newly widowed Maria Graham landed in Valparaíso, Chile. Resisting all efforts to hustle her back to England, Graham, a professional writer and highly educated woman, rented herself a cottage in the Chilean?not the British?section of Valparaíso and traveled through Chile for nine months until driven out by a major earthquake and the threat of civil war.
