Description - Life and Death in the Age of Sail by Robin F. Haines

This landmark book was shortlisted for the 2004 NSW Premier's History Awards. The author will be a guest at the Adelaide Writers Festival in March, 2006. This book provides vivid insights into the experience of steerage emigrants leaving Britain for Australia throughout the nineteenth century. It draws from letters and diaries of passengers, who write movingly about the illness and deaths of their children and tell of coping with everyday life below decks.
