"Journey" was written by Ray Baxter to tell the story of his great grandfather, William Daniel Baker, who, in August 1876, at the age of 17 took his mother Helen and his 12 year old sister Lillie on a journey from famine in Dublin to the United Kingdom. The famine had killed his father and his other sister. His brother was put in a penal institution for stealing corn to feed the family and was never seen again. William got a job on "The Nile" a packet steamer plying between Dublin and London. On August 30th 1876 his life was inexorably changed when "The Nile" was caught in a storm off the North coast of Cornwall. He saved the life of his mother and Lillie, but lost the lower part of his right leg. The family was befriended by Dr James Basset in Portreath who looked after the family for six months.Journey tells of the events which happened, the relationships which developed and the hardships which were endured.
