Minnie Dean: the first - and only - woman to be hanged in New Zealand. Baby farmer and child murderer, or hardworking wife and mother, supporting her family by caring for unwanted children in a society that shunned her? Karen Zelas explores the trials of Minnie Dean using a myriad of voices, including Dean's own, from her childhood in Scotland to the gallows in Invercargill, 1895.
