"A fascinating insight into the early colonial trade with Australia and New Zealand that brings the 19th century to life. This is the story of the unusually long and interesting career of a small Scottish schooner spent primarily in the southern hemisphere.... Built in Kirkcudbright, Scotland in 1789, she was wrecked on the Chesterfield Islands, Pacific Ocean in 1863. Her incredible rebirth only four months later as the schooner, Hamlet's Ghost, is verified by painstaking and meticulous research into records and logs of the vessels concerned."--Back cover.
