Human Cargo

‘An elegant, vital insight into human suffering and survival.’ Cerys Matthews

This rich, timely book gives voice to emigrants, the enslaved, 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.

Matthew Crampton also performs Human Cargo as a show of story and song. Find out more at the Human Cargo website.
