Queer Dutchman (The Queer Dutchman)

In 1725, a sailor accused of “unnatural acts” by his officers due to his affection for his ward aboard a Dutch ship was forcibly marooned on Ascension Island. This account is drawn from the actual journals of the sailor, Jan Svilt, which chronicled his experiences on the dry desert island in the South Atlantic. Set against a background of puritanical and avaricious Holland, exotic Batavia, and licentious Capetown, this book is a unique and captivating reading experience.
