 ABOUT THE TITLE
Henry de Monfreid was a nobleman writer smuggler and adventurer who travelled the world during the 1920s with his wife and young daughter in search of excitement and quick money. First seeking his fortune by becoming a collector and merchant of the fabled Gulf pearls he was then drawn into the shadowy world of arms trading slavery and drugs. When he decided to set out on his own transporting hashish from Piraeus to Suez his daring and initiative compensated for his lack of knowledge and experience. Written with an engaging wit and charm Hashish describes de Monfreid s fail-safe hiding places for contraband how to catch a water turtle and the aphrodisiac properties of shark meat - and is alive with the people he encountered on his travels from paunchy customs officials and Bedouin camel-drivers to a marooned Dankali fisherman and a jovial Greek undertaker. Author: Henry De Monfreid
