Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0862439523, Paperback)

In May 1865, a twelve-year-old clipper ship sailed from Liverpool, bound for Patagonia, seven thousand miles away. She had not been designed to carry passengers and well past her sailing prime. On board were 162 Welshmen, women and children whose traditions and language were being threatened by the anglicization that was engulfing Wales and whose poverty was driving them to seek new land. ""Mimosa: The life and times of the ship that sailed to Patagonia"" is the story of the Mimosa's construction in Aberdeen, the men who owned and sailed her, her voyages as a tea and cargo clipper in some of the most dangerous seas in the world, her legendary voyage to Patagonia and her final days on the mosquito-infested coast of West Africa.
