of Captain James Maclean Dempster and his family from the
earliest days of the Swan River Colony to the beginnings of
the twentieth century is traced in The Dempsters. Set
against the broader history of Western Australia it covered
the pioneering family's involvement in activities including
shipping and coastal trading, exploration, farming, whaling,
fishing, pearling, sandalwooding, and the search for gold.
