SCOPE AND CONTENTS

Summary

The author of the bestselling Cargo of Women and Australia's Birthstain tracks the lives of Irish convicts. The luck of the Irish was chronic bad luck, as their sad history attests. That's how it looked for 250 Irish convicts when their ship, the Hive, sank ignominiously off the NSW coast in 1835. Miraculously all survived.
