SAILING FOR GOLD

1853 -- gold diggings in Australia -- and a prescribed sea voyage for a 17-year old youth from Massachusetts -- and you have the start of your story. There is plenty of authentic material in this story of sailing round the Cape from Boston to Sydney, life on board ship and on shore, Australian adventures and misadventures, and so on, but the telling smacks of the amateur and the story is second-rate.
