Tales Without Reason: Forgotten Heroes of the Apostolate in 1840s Australia - Paperback

ID: 1163209250

[EAN: 9781856073363], [PU: Columba Press 11 Jun 2001], Book Description\\nWhat drove a hodgepodge band of clerics, lacking even a common language, to strike out for the wilds of Australia in 1845? \\n\\nHistory teaches us the official reasons - to minister to the two million 'savages' in Western Australia - but this book - through personal letters and other first-hand accounts - tells a more human story. \\n\\nThomas O'Malley has written an adventure story, plain and simple: the four months' voyage out, the daily struggle to survive in the bush, and the frustration of good intentions by misguided ambition. \\n\\nStudents of colonial history will find a rich depiction of life in the very early days of Western Australia, a mere twenty-five years after the foundation of the western colonies. \\n\\nReaders who want a deeper understanding of missionary zeal will discover a moving but unsentimental portrayal, based on the experience of the participants as revealed in their own words. \\n\\nFr O'Malley shares the fruits of more than ten years' research in Australia, Ireland and the Archives of the Holy Ghost Order in Paris. Without pretense or condescension, he weaves original and secondary sources in a narrative that allows the central players to speak for themselves. Not least important, Fr O'Malley's own missionary experience (on the island of Mauritius) allows him to speak with a credible voice. \\n\\nThese missionary contemporaries of Charles Darwin gives new meaning to 'the survival of the fittest'! \\n\\nSynopsis\\nWhat drove a hodgepodge band of clerics, lacking even a common language, to strike out for the wilds of Australia in 1845? History teaches us the official reasons but this book - through personal letters and other first-hand accounts - tells a more human story. \\n
