The 'hungry thirties' of the 1800's were desperate times of hopeless poverty and unemployment in Britian. Mechanisation of farms and factories had cast thousands out of work. The farm workers rallied behind 'Captain Swing', a mythical figurehead who urged them to protest by smashing machines and burning crops.

Daniel Imlach and three fellow 'Swing Rioters' are convicted of burning hay ricks and transported to Van Diemen's Land for seven years, Daniel is put aboard the ill-fated George III and suffers shipwreck just sixty miles from Hobart Town.

Daniel is assigned to a coach builder whose wife schemes to have him marry her daughter in order to assist with her ambition to build a great family business and respectability. Daniel wants his wife and daughter to join him in Van Diemen's Land, but he has to overcome difficulties that were put in his way by circumstances, and an unscrupulous woman.

This is a work of fiction based on true events, and a fascinating one that's well worth the read.
