Reviews
This is an amazing/ untold true story of the White Slave trade ( You did not know there was one did you? ). Estimates of a million Europeans captured and sold into slavery in North Africa. Gangs of pirates raiding the villages on the coasts of Ireland & England capturing men,women and children. The book even mentions pirates rampaging through the streets of Hull! It's not right to compare 2 evils, but read the horrors inflicted on these captives by the despot ruler of Morocco and the cruelty seems more barborous than even that of the West Indian Slave trade. A fascinating story of this period and one man's escape to tell the tale. Well written, a page turner, I can't recommend this highly enough
