Escape from Van Diemen's Land: The James Gammell Chronicles (Soft Cover Book) by Elizabeth Gammell Hedquist
$19.99
The amazing story of James Gammell is set against the backdrop of the social and political conflicts of the 19th century. During his journeys and adventures on three continents, he often barely escaped the jaws of death.

Captured in the Canadian rebellion, he was condemned to a life sentence in the British penal colony at Van Diemen's Land, and made a daring escape from the island. Returning to the United States he headed west on the Oregon Trail, becoming acquainted with such notable figures as Brigham Young, Jim Bridger, and Parley P. Pratt. "James Gammell's exceptional life story deserves to be better known."
-Stuart D. Scott, author, To the Outskirts of Habitable Creation

I just discovered your book and feel that all my Christmases have come at once! James Gammell (Gemmell) is my great-great-grandfather. What I've read in your book is amazing. Your research is excellent."
-Sandra Baril, Sheridan, Montana
