Book Description
In the summer of 1716, Cornish Cabin boy Thomas Pellow and Fifty-one of his comrades were captured at sea by Barbary corsairs. Fanatical Islamic slave traders were snatching thousands of Europeans for the great Slave markets of Algiers, Tunis and Sale in Morocco. Poked, Prodded and put through their paces, they were sold at auction to the highest bidder. Pellow and his hip-mates were bought by the tyrannical sultan of Morocco, who was constructing a vast imperial pleasure palace, built entirely by Christian slave labour. Being a reosourceful resilient and quick-thinking man, Thomas Pellow was selected to be a personal slave of the sultan, and was one of the fortunate few who survived to tell his tale.
