" ... The authentic story of the seventeenth-century Augustinian friar, Manrique, and of his journey to the independent kingdom of Arakan on the Bay of Bengal ... Manrique's diary tells of his adventures in Arakan, of his wanderings through its mysterious capital, Mrauk-U, and of his association with its Buddhist king, who dreamed of being lord of Asia and savior of the world."--cover leaf.
