Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0863279171, Paperback)

1847... Gerard Keegan, a schoolteacher, and his young bride left County Sligo to travel aboard the now infamous coffin ships to Canada. In his diary Gerard Keegan charts the reality of famine and emigration--relatives seeking his advice, the walk from Sligo to Dublin, fever on board the ship, a fight with the first mate, a catch of fish, storms, sighting whales, the passengers' first sight of land--and the bittersweet fate of those who survived to reach the promised New World.
