The Restless Danish Immigrants
This book follows the life and times of four generations of the Johnson family.
From Denmark, Ambrose and Margherita Johnson sailed to Melbourne, Australia arriving in 1855. They followed the thousands of other gold diggers to the Hepburn area in Victoria.
They were the first ‘Aussie’ Johnsons of the ancestral line.
Although the book centres on the Johnson families it reflects the life and struggles of people in Australia from the gold rushes through to pioneering dairy farmers on the beautiful but inhospitable Daintree River.
If interested in the history of the Third and Fourth Generations of the Johnson Family, their life was the inspiration for the historical fiction novels: Destination Daintree and Daintree Reflections.
