Publisher's Comments

Citing the high number of Irish citizens who died from poor conditions on ships carrying them to North America away from the harrowing 19th-century Irish Potato Famine, the story of an infant born at sea documents the efforts of crewpeople and thousands of passengers to secure everyone's survival through acts of heroism and human decency.
