The Englishman, the Moor and the Holy City by Joan Taylor
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1601 an English sea captain, Henry Timberlake, sets off to trade with the East. Leaving behind a wife and children, he journeys to Alexandria and then overland to Cairo. He then decides to journey to Jerusalem, travelling overland to Gaza, and surviving an ambush. Then Timberlake meets a companion who will change his life. In Palestine, a Moor from Fez on his way to Mecca saves Timberlake's life, not once, but twice, and they become friends and travelling companions. In this fascinating true story of a seventeenth-century adventurer, Joan Taylor brings to life Palestine of a bygone era, and explores the relationship between Islam and Christianity at the foundation of the modern world.
