DISCOVER THE REAL STORY OF AUSTRALIA'S 1854 EUREKA STOCKADE REBELLION, THROUGH THE EYES OF A YOUNG WELSH BOYReviewed in the United Kingdom on 11 October 2016
Journey to Eureka is a fine book, detailing the early life of an 1850s Welsh boy, Llew Jones, who manipulates events to ensure he's transported to Australia. He witnesses The Eureka Stockade, a rebellion of gold miners against the authorities, that occurred in Ballarat, Victoria, in 1854. As always, Kerry presents the real history of these events honestly and unflinchingly, whilst also telling us the story of the lives of immigrant families in Victoria, with details of how they built homes, what they ate and how they lived. The sections covering the long, difficult sea voyage to Australia are portrayed superbly. This is a fine book for young teens and for adults wanting to know more about life in Australia for immigrants in the 1850s as well as to understand The Eureka Stockade rebellion. It is written with a delicacy that enables it to be read by children aged 10+. I wish this book could be reprinted as it is only available second-hand.
Very interesting bookReviewed in the United States on 23 April 2016
Excellent book. I love Kerry's work. I may give a copy to my grandso or better yet his mom so he'll think it's a grown up's book. It may not be, but it's well written and covers an area of Australian history most American's have no way of knowing.

A convincing first person story of Australia's 1850's migration and gold driven rebellionReviewed in the United States on 17 January 2014
This book is aimed at a young adult audience, and even though it's many years since that description applied to me, I have read and re read it. It follows the travels of a young Welsh boy as circumstances and his interest take him in an immigrant ship to Melbourne and eventually the Ballarat region. The book gives a vivid description of life, social conditions and power and intrigue in those days. Hugely readable, and should be an eye-opener for younger readers.
