While anchored in Nootka Sound the Boston was attacked by what were thought of as "friendly" Nootka Indians. The two only survivors became slaves owned by Chief Maquinna. Their worst fear was the realization that they could be killed whenever their master chose. Rescued after 28 months in captivity, this is Jewitt's story in his own words.
