Andrew and Catherine Burnett pose with their children outside their Mt Cook homestead, in the 1870s. The family had to endure extreme isolation. In 1873 Joanna Acland-Troyte was part of a group that visited the Burnetts on their way to Aoraki/Mt Cook. The visit caused quite a stir. Joanna was the first woman other than their mother that the Burnett children had ever seen.
