Victorian explorer Richard Burton is best known for his translation of the Kama Sutra and his writings on Africa and West Asia - but this was his first book, published in 1851. After he was expelled from Oxford for unruly behaviour, Burton joined the British Indian Army and spent five happy years in Sindh before an attack of cholera sent him south to Nilgris. Ever obsessed with discovery, he renounced the comforts of a steamer to amble down the coast in a pattimar. His matchless drollery makes his adventures and misadventures a hilarious and transporting read. Includes an introduction by Burton expert Dane Kennedy.
