Description
In the mid-19th century, captain Robert Bennet Forbes's trading expeditions took him from Boston to such far-flung locales as China, Hong Kong, and Macao. These letters he exchanged with his wife Rose provide a rare glimpse of life onboard ship in the era—as well as Forbes's impressions of China and its Opium War with Britain—and form a dual portrait of a happily married couple longing to be together again. Containing black and white period illustrations throughout, the book also features background information on the Forbes family and the China of that era by the captain's descendant, Phyllis Forbes Kerr.
