How do modern refugees compare with those trafficked or transported in the past? This rich and timely book gives voice to emigrants, slaves, convicts and other human cargo from the 18th and 19th centuries. Its striking mix of story and folk song sets these past voices beside testimony from today - so shedding new light on a defining disaster of our time. 'An elegant, vital insight into human suffering and survival.' Cerys Matthews.
