    Description
    An Entertainment.

    'Hussein' was Patrick O'Brian's second novel. Published when he was only in his early twenties, this marvellously readable Indian adventure was much admired. It tells the story of a young mahout - or elephant handler - his childhood and life in India and his relationship and adventures with elephants.

    As a boy, Hussein falls in love with a beautiful elusive girl Sashiya, and arranges for another of her suitors to be murdered with a fakir's curse. The dead man's relative vow vengeance. Hussein escapes and his exploits, which include snake charming, sword fighting and cross-border spying, begin . . .
