Description: When Captain Illiam Quillian Kewley and his band of smugglers from the Isle of Man are intercepted by British Customs in 1857, they are forced to put their ship, Sincerity, up for charter. The only takers are two eccentric Englishmen, the Reverend Geoffrey Wilson and Dr. Thomas Potter, who want Kewley to take them to the Garden of Eden, which the minister believes is on the island of Tasmania. Fortunately for all concerned, British Customs has failed to confiscate all the smugglers' contraband, and so Captain Kewley is willing to embark for the other side of the globe via a circuitous route designed to evade authorities.

Meanwhile, in Tasmania, the British "civilization" of the aboriginal tribes is in full force. The clever and charming Peevay narrates the British colonials' genocidal assault on his tribe, which is being violently forced from their land. In fact, every character of any significance has a voice in the narration of "English Passengers," and so when Sincerity finally reaches Tasmania, the clash of cultures on all fronts gives rise to the outrageous confrontations, hysterical mayhem, and uniquely rendered personal truths of conquest and devastation.

This is truly a bravura performance by a writer of exceptional skill and talent, a novel that will set new standards for historical and nautical adventure writing.
