review Î eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ï Giles Milton

White Gold characters Ü eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB review Î eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ï Giles Milton Read White Gold Imony of a Cornish cabin boy named Thomas Pellow Giles Milton vividly reconstructs a disturbing little known chapter of history Pellow was bought by the tyrannical sultan of Morocco who was constructing an imperial pleasure palace of enormous scale and grandeur built entirely by Christian slave labour As his personal. This book typically of its author was thoroughly engrossing and a remarkable historical tale I found it fascinating that Thomas Pellow could survive in spite of the adversity of spending 23 years as a slave in Meknes Morocco He was captured and taken into slavery aged 11 and yet outlived those who were captured along with him even though he was so young The cruel and barbarous treatment of white slaves during this period piued my interest which remained high throughout the duration of the book Pellow has a style which allows the reader to feel connected personally with the key characters in spite of them living several centuries previously This grips the reader and takes him along on a whirlwind adventure which could easily be taken from a high budget Hollywood filmOverall a great book and definitely worth reading for anyone but particularly those with an interest in history andor adventureI didn t find the book uite as interesting however as Samurai William hence me giving it only 3 stars
