About the Book

After a long six months, the ship of Sir Thomas Roe, the ambassador of the King of England, reached the Indian port-city of Sural in the autumn of 1615. On instructions from the East India Company he is supposed to solicit permission for a trade privilege from the Great Mogul for English merchants. The Dutch and the Portuguese already "have a foot in the door".

A captain, a surgeon, as well as some employees – and Christopher, a young draftsman – accompany Mr. Roe. Christopher’s task is to make and bring back drawings of the task if to make and bring back drawings of the people, the architecture, the landscape and the vegetation in India. Open-minded and curious as he is, Christopher quickly makes contact with the locals and learns their language, so that later he can even translate for Mr. Roe. But not everyone likes the young, talented feringi, the foreigner. More than once Christopher runs into trouble. His biggest adventure, however, is his encounter with the mysterious Amanda.

Gertraude Wilhelm relates this exciting tale of a first encounter with India in the light of Thomas Roe’s diary and her own deep understanding of the country.
