Talk about Robert Whyte's 1847 Famine Ship Diary: The Journey of an Irish Coffin Ship


Velellan
This is the published diary of a man traveling in the captain's quarters of a ship carrying Irish immigrants to North America. There are some scenes that won't leave you: the description of leaving home and saying good-bye forever, the appalling sickness of a young mother down in steerage where disease was rampant. And most of all the difference in the living (and dying) conditions on the voyage between the captain's family and the families below, who were little more than livestock. Less than livestock, really, since they were responsible for feeding themselves. Even livestock are fed and watered.

A little depressing, but I guess you can see that from the title.

Great story of the Irish Migration
Timberahue
Reading this book surely brought to mind the horrific conditions most all of the Irish emigrants endured while enroute to what they hoped to be a better living condition/opportunity. Many of them didn't survive the crossing to Canada's lands.
I recommend this book just for the historical value of it.
Great read.
Adrietius
very inf.ormative, and also heartbreaking account of this terrible time in Ireland. I would definitely reccomend this book to anyone interested in Irish history.

I just couldn't get into this book. Hard to read as the language is so different. Sad story from the little I did read.
