In the summer of 1627, two groups of Barbary corsairs raided Iceland, one from Salé, on the Moroccan coast, and one from Algiers. Between them, they killed dozens of people and captured over four hundred, packing the captives aboard their ships and transporting them to North Africa to be sold in the slave markets there. Most of these captives were taken from Heimaey, one of the Westman Islands. This book recounts the story of the corsair raid on Heimaey and its aftermath, a story that has never before been told in full.
