Drawing upon more than 80 personal diaries and journals of those on board, this resource explores the rich experience and the trials and tribulations of hopeful Anglo-Celtic pilgrims headed to Australia and New Zealand aboard migrant ships in the late 19th century. From daily routines to matters of food, health, religion, crime, and mutiny, this history unearths the humor, scandal, and personal triumph that defined the nautical pilgrimage of hundreds.
