Undaunted: The Irish in Australia is a collection of true stories about Irish men and women who travelled to Australia in search of a better life in a remote and harsh world. From 1788, when the first convict ships landed to the mid-20th century, these true stories about settlers, convicts and their descendants highlight the best and worst of human behaviour, and the Irish contribution to the struggle to create a nation.
