Summary
The moving story of an extraordinary odyssey undertaken 120 years ago by one small family: the author's own. In the 1880s a small family set off on foot from County Durham on a remarkable journey that took them via Liverpool across the Atlantic to America and then, after a string of epic adventures, back home again
Summary
Covers thousands of miles and cultures and environments as diverse as the Victorian UK coalfields, the great imperial entrepot of Liverpool, the post-bellum American south, roaring 1880s New Orleans, the stew of the free-for-all Pittsburgh mines, Texas in the wake of the Alamo, and the unclaimed Indian Territory of North America
