A Drift of 'Derwent Ducks' is a study of the 200 female Irish convicts who were transported to Van Diemen's Land from Ireland in 1849 on the Australasia. These women had suffered through the Irish famine yet many of them made a new life for themselves in Van Diemen's Land, most marrying and settling down to raise families.
Comes with a bonus CD containing a biography of each of the 200 convicts listing sentence and life events - an invaluable resource for historians and genealogists.
In excellent pre-loved condition - some slight marks on cover but otherwise near new
