This month, we’ll be discussing White Gold: The extraordinary story of Thomas Pellow and North Africa's one million European slaves, by Giles Milton, Hodder & Stoughton, 2005.

In the 17th and 18th centuries, up to one million white Europeans were captured by Barbary pirates and sold into slavery in North Africa. Milton explores this little-known aspect of the slave trade through the experiences of Cornish cabin boy, Thomas Pellow.
