Description


This wonderfully rich and moving book provides new insight into the lives of those who migrated from the United Kingdom during the nineteenth century. Evocatively describing the experiences of emigrants in steerage on their passage to Australia, and of those charged with their care, we  hear from the migrant's letters and diaries as they write about everyday life on board and their hopes for the future, as they weep over children buried at sea.
