Sigwulf, a Saxon prince exiled to the court of Carolus, King of the Franks, is summoned by the royal advisor Alcuin of York. Carolus has received magnificent gifts from the Caliph of Baghdad and is determined to send back presents that will be equally sensational. White is the royal colour of Baghdad so the most important gifts will be rare white animals from the Northlands. Sigwulf, having proved himself as a royal agent to Moorish Spain, has been selected to obtain the creatures, then take them to Baghdad. He must find white gyrfalcons and two white polar bears and -- as Carolus has seen its picture in a book of beasts -- a unicorn. He and his companions travel far into the north. Though they obtain some of the animals, they quickly realize that not all are even real. Setting out for Baghdad with their menagerie, they encounter danger after danger and it seems that someone is trying to wreck their mission ... with each stage of the long journey bringing a new and unexpected peril

"Who was the real Robinson Crusoe? In search of the world's most famous castaway, Tim Severin travels where men were shipwrecked or abandoned in the days of the pirates and buccaneers...and lived to tell their tales of survival." "A Scottish sailor, Alexander Selkirk, has long been considered the real-life inspiration for Crusoe. So Severin begins his quest on the island of Juan Fernandez, 400 miles off the coast of Chile, where Selkirk was marooned for four years." "Seeking Robinson Crusoe combines travel to remote islands and shores with literary detective work. Its cast of characters ranges from rascally eighteenth-century sea captains to the present-day native peoples of the Caribbean rim, from a Scots schoolmaster to a research student from Canada who can speak the obscure Miskito language. A tale of adventure and discovery, Seeking Robinson Crusoe is a journey into myth and history."--BOOK JACKET
