Item Description...
Plundering ships to create their own city-state, the Algerian Pirates were scourge of the Mediterranean Sea during the early to mid-1800s. In the midst of their rule of terror, a merchant and his sons are taken prisoner to the Pirate capital of Algiers. Follow their adventures as they rescue other prisoners and experience life in a pirate city. From their imprisonment to their times as slaves and eventual release, this is a gripping novel that won't release you until the very last page.

Publishers Description
To say that Mrs Langley was dumbfounded is but a feeble way of expressing the state of her mind. Although a lady of great moral courage, and accustomed from infancy to self-control, she felt, on first beholding her timid little daughter, strongly disposed to seize Fatma by the hair of the head, and use her as a bludgeon wherewith to fell her Algerine mother; but, remembering the dignity of her position as, in some sort, a reflected representative of the British Empire in these parts, and also recalling to mind the aptitude of Algerine gentlemen to tie up in sacks and drown obstreperous Algerine ladies, she restrained herself, bit her lips, and said nothing.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nineteenth Century Algiers  Feb 28, 2008
A merchant and his two sons leave Sicily on a voyage, and are taken captive by a pirate from Algiers. They are enslaved, and during their many exciting adventures, we learn of the way of life in the pirate city. There is plenty of history included, along with some of the terrible ways of enforcing discipline which were used. Our main characters behave nobly, rise and fall in favor with the Deys (title of the king of Algiers), and eventually make their escape when all the slaves in Algiers were freed by the British.

I appreciate the fact that Ballantyne's historical adventures are explicitly Christian. In this one, the gospel is presented to a dying man in the slaves' prison.

Until reading this book, I had no idea about much of the history of Algiers, and this book was an easy and exciting way to learn.
