Summary, etc.:
A crucial, forgotten chapter of American history-brilliantly retold for a new generation. Everywhere hailed as a masterpiece of historical adventure, this enthralling narrative recounts the experiences of twelve American sailors who were shipwrecked off the coast of Africa in 1815, captured by desert nomads, sold into slavery, and subjected to a hellish two-month journey through the bone-dry heart of the Sahara. The ordeal of these men-who found themselves tested by barbarism, murder, starvation, death, dehydration, and hostile tribes that roamed the desert on camelback- is made indelibly vivid in this gripping account of courage, brotherhood, and survival.
