Wrecked on the Feejees - Part 2 Time and Tide Nantucket

    • History

Part 2 of 4

The Experiences of William S. Cary, a Nantucket man.  The sole survivor of the crew of the whaleship Oeno, who lived for nine years among cannibals of the South Pacific.

"Cary's log of his experiences is a most graphic depiction of life among the Fiji Islanders.  His capture and adoption by the king of the tribe, the life and customs of the natives, his escape and return home are all touched upon in detail, the whole story forming one of the most thrilling tales of the sea ever printed.  And the best part of the story is that it is true."

Harry B. Turner, Nantucket, MA  May 1, 1928
