Abstract:

"The Sixty Miler is a poetic blend of memoir, dramatised biography, and maritime history. Author Norma Sim twins the life of her husband William with the story of the Birchgrove Park, one of the fleet of coal-carrying ships that sailed between Newcastle and Sydney since the early 1800's. Both man and ship were from Aberdeenshire, both sailed the globe during the 1940's and 1950's, and in 1956 their paths would ultimately cross in tragic circumstances. Interwoven with these storylines are the meticulously researched histories of many other sixty milers that plied the treacherous coasts of New South Wales."--Provided by publisher.
