In DevelopmentIn Sand And Blood
In 1815, an American brig, the Commerce, was wrecked on the desolate coast fringing the Western Sahara. Starving and dying of thirst, its 12 man crew were captured, stripped, beaten and enslaved, kept barely alive on camel blood and urine. Five were never to be seen again, the others sold to a succession of tribesmen who bought and bartered each man for as little as a tattered blanket. An Arab trader, Sidi Hamet, then bought Captain James Riley and some of his men, aiming only to sell them on at a profit. By impassioned advocacy and sheer bluff, Riley convinced Hamet that he would receive a far greater ransom from a European consul - that in truth existed only in Riley’s imagination - who was supposedly based in a Moroccan port a thousand miles to the north.
