Though intended only for the eyes of his beloved in England, this diary written by James Bell, sailor on the voyage of the good ship Planter to Australia in 1838, provides a unique insight into the experience of sailing to Australia in the middle of the Nineteenth Century. An invaluable addition to the history of the emigrant ships to Australia.

Comments about A Voyage to Australia:
I bought this hoping it would include the conditions on board a convict ship and what the men went through on the long voyage. This Convict writes about the wind about one or two people and about being above deck. Look its not really informative in what people really wanna know. If you want to get an inside look at what the voyage was really like, I'd skip this.
