The life, adventures, and pyracies of the famous Captain Singleton : containing an account of being set on shore in the Island of Madagascar, his settlement there, with a description of the place and inhabitants : of his passage from thence, in a paraguay, to the main land of Africa, with an account of the customs and manners of the people : his great deliverances from the barbarous natives and wild beast : of his meeting with an Englishman, a citizen of London, among the Indians, the great riches he acquired, and his voyage home to England : as also Captain Singleton's return to sea, with an account of his many adventures and pyracies with the famous Captain Avery and others by Daniel Defoe( Book )

31 editions published between 1969 and 1990 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The narrative describes the life of an Englishman, stolen from a well-to-do family as a child and raised by Gypsies who eventually makes his way to sea.One half of the book concerns Singleton's crossing of Africa and the later half concerns his life as a pirate in the Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea. Defoe's description of piracy focuses for the most part on matters of economics and logistics, making it an intriguing if not particularly gripping read. Singleton's pirate behaves more like a merchant adventurer, perhaps Defoe's comment on the mercantilism of his day

Long years ago, as India made its tryst with destiny and the soul of a nation long suppressed was torn asunder, a story of love and compassion ensued. Sahitya Akademi awardee Shiv K. Kumar brings us a Partition novel that will delight readers with its fast-paced and humorous storytelling. Join Gautam Mehta as he converts to Christianity to divorce his wife, falls in love with a kidnapped Muslim beauty, and revels in adventures full of midnight swigs, enamelled snuffboxes, and quiet bouts of love-making. Join our stout-hearted, quick-witted protagonist as he hobnobs with the remaining Raj-era relics and, despite being hung-over, defeats the ruddy kidnappers of his romantic, timid little thing, his adversaries have not a whiff of a chance!
