The book was not what I was expecting as I thought it would be a very detailed book on the voyage to Australia by looking at the size. It is only really a short book, but has a short biography of the people who were on board the vessels. Worth picking up to read so you can learn more about the high death rates on the second fleet and why it happened. The fleet goes by another name in history and that is the death fleet.
