Eager For Labour could be described as a story of avarice, exploitation and retribution, of anticipation, deception and disillusionment, of hardship, determination and success, of disappointment, disease or death.

For all of these are manifest in this account of emigration to the British settlement at Swan River, Western Australia between 1829 and 1832. But although the lives of several individuals and families are woven through this book, it is not a novel.

It is a history of events connected by a single thread that runs throughout: that of indentured labour.
