New Book - Death Ships
Now working with a publisher. Hopefully available in about three months this book tells the story of a sad chapter in emigration history that occurred as a result of the discovery of gold in 1851. The gold rush led to an enormous demand for labour to replace those that had gone to find their fortune. Many more emigrants were urgently needed. The normal emigrant ships were not available but 6 very large clipper ships built in North America were. This is the story of what happened when they were commissioned to transport large numbers of emigrants to Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide.

Have been researching for some months the work of colonial artist S.T. Gill and have now started writing about his contribution to our understanding of 19th C. Australia through his art.
