The Floating Brothel: The Extraordinary True Story Of An Eighteenth-century Ship And Its Cargo Of Female Convicts - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9780786867875

ID: 978078686787

A seafaring story with a twist--the incredible voyage of a shipload of disorderly girls and the men who transported them, fell for them, and sold them.This riveting work of rediscovered history tells for the first time the plight of the female convicts aboard the Lady Julian, which set sail from England in 1789 and arrived in Australia''s Botany Bay a year later. The women, most of them petty criminals, were destined for New South Wales to provide its hordes of lonely men with sexual favors as well as progeny. But the story of their voyage is even more incredible, and here it is expertly told by a historian with roots in the boat-building business and a true love of the sea.Siân Rees delved into court documents and firsthand accounts to extract the stories of these women''s experiences on board a ship that both held them prisoner and offered them refuge from their oppressive existence in London. At the heart of the story is the passionate relationship between Sarah Whitelam, a convict, and the ship''s steward, John Nicol, whose personal journals provided much of the material for this book. Along the way, Rees brings the vibrant, bawdy world of London--and the sights, smells, and sounds of an eighteenth-century ship--vividly to life. In the tradition of Nathaniel Philbrick''s In the Heart of the Sea, this is a winning combination of dramatic high seas adventure and untold history.

ISBN: 0786867876

Edition reliée, ID: 373531632

[EAN: 9780786867875], Gebraucht, wie neu, [PU: Hyperion Books, Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.], PRISONERS TRANSPORTATION PENAL COLONIES NEW, History|Historical Geography, History|United States|General, Political Science|General, Jacket, 236 Pages Indexed. Historian Sian Rees delved into court documents, letters and journals to extract firsthand accounts of the women's experiences on board a ship that both held them prisoner and offered them refuge from their oppressive existence in London. Forced by the economy of the times to beg, steal and sell themselves, the women of the ship defined resourcefulness, and set up profitable businesses in their various ports of call. Many formed relationships with the ship's officers and sailors, and when the ship landed in New South Walkes, they had newborn babies to show for it. At the heart of this riveting history is the passionate relationship between Sarah Whitelam, a convict, and the ship's steward, John Nicol, whose personal journals provided much of the material for this book. Alond the way , Rees brings the sights, smells and sounds of an 18th century ship vividly to life. Rollicking and exhaustively researched, the Floating Brothel ends with a grand beginning --- the landing of these disorderly girls on a rugged continent that they would make their own. Sian Rees was born and raised in Cornwall, England in a family boatbuilders and designers. This is her first book. Size: 6 1/2" X 9 1/2"
