About this object

"In the nineteenth century the Irish population was halved ... traces the three causes of this depletion: the famine; the emigrations; & the transportations to Australia ... covers eighty years of Irish history, told through the intimate lens of political prisoners ... who served time as convicts in Australia ... we see not only the daily experience of famine sufferers & Irish activists, but also the astonishing history of the Irish diaspora: to the St Lawrence, to New York, to the high plains of Montana & the bush towns of New South Wales"--Jacket.
