NotesThe work is originally presented as anonymously authored, and edited by Jane Porter. However, the work has often been attributed to Jane Porter's elder brother, W.O.Porter. The reasons for including the work in this bibliography of female robinsonades are both that the female protagonist plays a more important role than the wives of male protagonists often do, and that Jane Porter's role as editor comes close to the role of co-author. The work is consequently treated as co-authored by the Porters.
