Text describes how Staden was puchased from the natives by a Portuguese factor and as they were leaving the harbor of Rio de Janeiro, a French ship arrived and attacked the Portuguese boat. Staden was badly wounded in this attack. Hans Staden was a German soldier who traveled twice to Brazil on Portuguese ships. On his second trip in 1522, he was shipwrecked and captured by the Tupinamba, a cannibalistic Brazilian tribe. Image title taken from chapter title.
