Life on a Famine Ship

Life on a Famine Ship

Duncan Crosbie

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

Heart felt story told from the point of view of a nine year old Irish boy who like many had to make the horrific journey to America after the repeated failure of Ireland’s potato crops.

Nine-year-old Michael O'Connor's story is typical of the two million Irish people who fled the Great Famine of Ireland between 1845 and 1850. We accompany Michael and his family through repeated failures of the potato crop that force them to leave Ireland.

They seek passage on the sailing ship Dunbrody, bound for North America, where the family strives to rebuild a life in the New World.
