A Seamans Narrative of his Adventures during a Captivity among Chinese Pirates on the Coast of Cochin-China: And Afterwards during - new book

ISBN: 9781108045551

ID: 978110804555

During the time of the Second Opium War between Britain and China (1856-60), sailor Edward Brown (about whom little is known) was discharged from a trading vessel in Hong Kong. He was then offered the opportunity to captain a Chinese-crewed ship bound for Wai-how on the west coast, though he was warned that it was a risky enterprise because of the ongoing hostilities. Soon his ship was chased by Chinese pirates and Brown was taken captive for many months in Cochin-China (southern Vietnam). Published in 1861, this engaging account of his captivity, attempts at escape, and eventual return to his livelihood as a mate on a trading ship is told in a lively style, and gives a first-hand account of both a turbulent time in one of the world''s most dangerous seas, and the different people and customs he encountered in the course of his enforced time on land.
