Description:
"Campbell set out for India across Europe in 1781, planning to sail only across the Indian Ocean. He had many adventures before he finally reached Goa, and sailed from that port May 18, 1782. On the next day the ship ran into a very bad storm, became leaky and then waterlogged, and finally struck on the Indian coast within the dominions of Hyder Ali. Captain Campbell and one other Englishman reached shore, out of eleven European passengers, along with fourteen of fifty-six lascars. Campbell was imprisoned by the Indians for a term of years, but was released after Hyder Ali's death. He joined the British Army in India, and then returned to England after being absent for four years and five days. The shipwreck in the narrative is given considerable space, but the major interest of the book lies in Campbell's other experiences."
