Book Description
Yankee India charts the beginnings of America`s fascination with the subcontinent. Independence from Britain in 1783 brough American merchants and shipwners the freedom to trade in Asia and the hope of handsome profits. Sailing in their small merchant vessels of 200 to 400 tons, Yankee mariners voyaged from ports along the eastern seaboard, becoming the first Americans to experience the distant and exotic civilization of India.
