A very compelling story.,
This review is from: White Gold: The Extraordinary Story of Thomas Pellow and North Africa's One Million European Slaves (Paperback)
Wow, what a read. The extraordinary true story of the young Thomas Pellow. To be honest, I couldn't put this book down, every page was riveting. His accounts of the Barbary pirates and the slave masters are shocking. I fail to see why this episode in history is ignored and never mentioned. I thoroughly recommend this book.
P.S. It would make a terrific film.
