Voyage of the Last Crusader is a gripping story of crusader battles and seafaring adventure to the unknown corners of the medieval world.
Set with geographic and historic accuracy in England, Arabia and tropical oceans along the sea route of the ancient Spice Trade, this is a fictional but feasible story of young Lord William, just fifteen, who fought alongside Prince Edward in the Last Crusade of 1271. We are with him on his long sea voyage to the Holy Land and with him in his Crusader battles, his life as a privileged slave in a royal household in Arabia, his sea-faring adventures in search of the fabled Spice Islands, his shipwreck on the shores of the Great South Land, and his return from the other side of the world.
Actual characters with key roles to play are Crusade leader Prince Edward of England, Muslim leader Sultan Baybars of Egypt, and Admiral Zheng He, commander of China’s Dragon Fleet. These major figures of history are described accurately, along with their deeds.
This story for ten to sixteen-year-old boys of imagination was written by a grandfather who once was such a boy himself.
