Full Title: The Narrative of Captain David Woodard and Four Seamen, Who Lost Their Ship while in a Boat at Sea, and Surrendered Themselves up to the Malays, in the Island of Celebes; Containing an Interesting Account of Their Sufferings from Hunger and Various Hardships, and Their Escape from the Malays, after a Captivity of Two Years and a Half: also an Account of the Manners and Customs of the Country, and a Description of the Harbours and Coast, &c. Together with an Introduction, and an Appendix, Containing Narrative of Various Escapes from Shipwrecks, under Great Hardships and Abstinence; Holding out a Valuable Seaman's Guide, and the Importance of Union, Confidence, and Perserverance, in the Midst of Distress. 

"In January of 1793, Woodard sailed in the American ship Enterprise from Batavia, bound for Manila. Sent off in a boat with live others to purchase provisions from another ship, they found themselves separated from their own ship after a storm. The seamen spent many days trying to locate their ship, but they were finally forced to land on Celebes, where one of them was murdered by the Malays and the others were taken into captivity. They escaped with the help of a Mohammedan priest and gradually made their way to Macassar and then back to Batavia. Included in the book is a geographical account of the island of Celebes, a brief vocabulary of the Malay language, and various concise accounts of other land and sea hardships, including an account of the Bounty survivors, the loss of the Pandora, and an account from one of the survivors of the Black Hole of Calcutta"--Hill, 1912.
