Description:
New book, 297 pages. In 1782, the Grosvenor was one of the finest East Indiamen, a grant three-masted square rigger of 741 tons with 26 cannon. When she ran aground on the trecherous coast of south east Africa, and astonishing number of her crew and passengers, including women and children, survived. But the castaways were hundreds of miles from the nearest European outpost, and utterly ignorant or their surroundings and the people among whom they found themselves. Drawing upon new research, Taylor pieces together this extraordinary saga of the fate of the survivors.
