Captain Erskine, in 1849, sailed from Russell, New Zealand, and reached Niue or Savage Island. He visited Manua, Tutuila, and Upolu of the Samoan Islands. Next, Vavau, Lifuka, and Tongatabu were visited, then Fiji, the New Hebrides, New Caledonia, and Port Jackson. (Hill) Erskine includes vivid descriptions of the Pacific islanders he encountered.

His ethnographic descriptions of the islanders are greatly enhanced by the exceptional color plates. These depict various Pacific peoples along the voyage, including some with blonde hair. The map shows the route of the H.M.S. Havannah in the western Pacific.

Illustrated with eleven woodcuts plus seven lithographic plates [4 are chromolithographs] including frontispiece, and folding map.
