Coffin Ship: The Wreck of the Brig St. John by William Henry

The Great Famine drove huge numbers to leave Ireland and pursue new lives in foreign lands. In 1847 some 200,000 people sailed for Boston alone. Of this number, around 2,000 people never made it to their destination, killed by disease and hunger during their voyages.  Others survived the crossing, only to be lost within sight of the New World.
