Summary: Their homes broken and their parents dead, the adolescent Irish orphan girls sent to Australia at the time of the Great Famine faced new hardships when they arrived.

This book contains a collection of documents and a register of the orphans who came to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart.
