Description

Kathryn Miles' All Standing takes us along on the perilous Atlantic journey undertaken by 1 million desperate Irish . This book is a quick read, and easy to follow. It gives a good summary of the Irish Potato Famine and the immigrant ships of the time.

Kathryn Miles' All Standing takes us along on the perilous Atlantic journey undertaken by 1 million desperate Irish emigrants in the midst of what has become known simply as "the Famine", (as if there had been only one). Although the story of the famine is one most Americans are familiar with, since it was the impetus of so many of our ancestors, All Standing: The True Story of Hunger, Rebellion, and Survival brought to life parts of the story I'd never heard before.

Kathryn Miles illuminates the true horror of the Irish Potato Famine in the way that only well written and thoroughly . Fifty yards away was a group of statues depicting famine 100 years later.

Unfortunately, she was in drydock undergoing maintenance. I did witness the famine sculpture remembrance on the bank of the river.

The dramatic true tale of a boy born at sea during the Irish Potato famine and the “coffin ship” that saved him and thousands of others from one of the world’s greatest humanitarian crises.All Standing The Remarkable Story of the Jeanie Johnston, the Legendary Irish Famine Ship recounts the journeys of this famous ship, her heroic crew, and the immigrants who were ferried between Ireland and North America. Spurred by a complex web of motivations—shame, familial obligation, and sometimes even greed—more than a million people attempted to flee the Irish famine. More than one hundred thousand of them would die aboard one of the five thousand aptly named “coffin ships.” But in the face of horrific losses, a small ship named the Jeanie Johnston never lost a passenger. Shipwright John Munn, community leader Nicholas Donovan, Captain James Attridge, Dr. Richard Blennerhassett, and the efforts of a remarkable crew allowed thousands of people to find safety and fortune throughout the United States and Canada. Why did these individuals succeed when so many others failed? What prompted them to act, when so many people preferred to do nothing—or worse? Using newspaper accounts, rare archival documents, and her own experience sailing as an apprentice aboard the recently re-created Jeanie Johnston, Kathryn Miles tells the story of these extraordinary people and the revolutionary milieu in which they set sail. The tale of each individual is remarkable in and of itself; read collectively, their stories paint a unique portrait of bravery in the face of a new world order. Theirs is a story of ingenuity and even defiance, one that recounts a struggle to succeed, to shake the mantle of oppression and guilt, to endure in the face of unimaginable hardship. On more than one occasion, stewards of the ship would be accused of acting out of self-interest or greed. Nevertheless, what these men—and their ship—accomplished over the course of eleven voyages to North America was the stuff of legend. Interwoven in their tale is the story of Nicholas Reilly, a baby boy born on the ship’s maiden voyage. The Reilly family climbed aboard the Jeanie Johnston in search of the American Dream. While they would find some version of that dream, it would not be without a struggle—one that would deposit Nicholas into a deeply controversial moment in American history. Against this backdrop, Miles weaves a thrilling, intimate narrative, chronicling the birth of a remarkable Irish-American family in the face of one of the planet’s greatest human rights atrocities.

Flying back to the United States from Dublin in October 2014, I finished reading the book "All Standing" by Katherine Miles. The author sets the stage and background for the Irish immigration in the mid-1800s. Interestingly, the book starts out in Fergus Falls, Minnesota - "close to home".

As we flew, I reflected:
-Delta leaving Dublin and arriving 8 ½ hours later in Atlanta. (seven hours crossing the Atlantic) two meals on the plane.
-The average "famine ship"... 3 ½ months after leaving Tralee, 50% of passengers have died and been jettisoned. The rest are ambulatory, maybe a dozen able to walk off the ship.

I was led to the book by a chance encounter in Dublin. Walking through St. Stephen's Green, we edged into a group on tour being lectured to. (Caught our attention so much we ended up giving the leader a tip) we started listening when gathered around a statue of the men on horseback depicting the 1700s - when "Ireland was flush".

Fifty yards away was a group of statues depicting famine 100 years later. The next day I walked down to the river Liffey where a replica "Jeannie Johnson" ship is moored as a museum. Unfortunately, she was in drydock undergoing maintenance. I did witness the famine sculpture remembrance on the bank of the river. Haunting.

This is a remarable book providing an indepth look at how one ship provided transportation for the Irish victems of the famine from Ireland to the American continent. While the Captain and crew provided better care for passengers than did most "famine ships", it clearly relates how difficult and, in many cases, horrendous was the struggle for the Irish to survive. The Irish endured a number of terrible years in Ireland as well as many years of hardship and prejudice in the United States and Canada. The author follows a number of families after their arrival on one or another of the ships sailings thus providing a very real picture of their struggles. If the reader has a single Irish ancestor and some 50 million of us do, the book will provide an easy and fascinating read as well as an indepth understanding of what our ancestors went through and how fotunate we of later generations are that they had the tenacity to keep working toward success despite the terrible challenges they faced. A short book and worth the time to read

I began reading this book having heard the well-spoken author, Kathryn Miles, appear on NPR'S On Point Program. Since I was going to Ireland in May 2013 with my son, who had most generously given me the trip as a 70th birthday present, I thought the book would be enlightening for us in tracing our Irish heritage which began with my great,great grandfather coming to the U.S.A. from Ireland In 1860. I was not disappointed, as the compelling narrative is an historically accurate account of the Great Irish Famine and subsequent emigration of those unfortunates to America.. I felt like I knew all the members of the book's families of which the author spoke and was captivated following their journey to America and subsequent adjustments to their new lives here.
While in Dublin, we were able to take a guided tour of the replica ship of the Jeanie Johnston. To say that the ship's below deck quarters for the emigrants were cramped is markedly understated, especially after one has actually been there in the replica.
Excellent read.

We've all heard about the mass emigration of the Irish in the 19th century, but the whole picture has been elusive until this book. The overwhelming and horrifying scope of the deaths aboard the so-called coffin ships, the cholera, the typhus, it's a marvel that there is a surviving Irish American population at all. I was very deeply affected by this book. The British attitude that colonies of the empire serve the purpose of providing goods for Britain was not new to me, but it was a relevation to learn by letters and manifestos written at the time that if a colony became unable to provide goods, due to crop failure, then starvation and disease, it is of no more use. And the policy of not feeding those people because it would just make them lazy and unwilling to work! I had a tin of Earl Grey in my tea cupboard which I threw out and will never drink another cup of that. Then there's the ship, the Jeanie Johnston, and the story of the man who built her and the captain and doctor who carried the remarkable record of delivering their passengers to Canada in relative safety and good health. Three remarkable men-- they alone cared and tried to do the right thing, against the popular attitudes prevailing at that time.

All Standing, The Remarkable Story of the Jeanie Johnston, Kathryn Miles

Everyone's heard of the potato blight and the Irish famine. What's new for many of us is the dastardly behavior of the British who turned the blight into a full scale holocaust that finally murdered five million people. Kathryn Mile's book, "All Standing," like a dramatic piece of creative non-fiction, lets it all hang out aboard the Jeanie Johnston, one of the so-called "famine" ships who transported starving refugees to America, Canada, and Australia.

As the "best of the best," the best of fictionalized narrative, this story will grab your heart and stay with you forever. Author Miles brings it to unforgettable life. This book may be the next book to cause you to cry for the people portrayed.

Finally, Mile's research is awesome - the details of the lives of mid-century Irish and English times grab you and turn you "every way but loose." Make "All Standing" your next read and you'll wonder why you waited so long.
