In a series of essays written by leading scholars in the field, it offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives and experiences of thee newcomers as they left post-Famine Ireland and made their way to a destination "half the world from home". It uses many sources, including letterrs from migrants to their families in Ireland, and also looks at the history of Irish organisations in New Zealand, both Catholic and Protestant." -- Back cover
