To See The World

All his life José has seen the tall ships sail­ing in, from around the world, to Port Louis on the island of Mau­ri­tius, where he was born. As he watches them leave again, dis­ap­pear­ing below the hori­zon, he dreams of going with them – of sail­ing away, one day, to see the world. He thinks about all the adven­tures he will have, the ships he will cap­ture, the men he will com­mand, and the buried trea­sure he will find on far­away islands.

But when the young and beau­ti­ful Rose de Freycinet arrives on board the Uranie in 1818 José’s life is changed in ways that he has never imag­ined. Pirates, can­ni­bals, storms and ship­wreck become harsh real­i­ties and José is forced to muster all his courage and inate intel­li­gence to sur­vive the dan­gers as well as the excite­ment of ship­board life.
