'An untold story of colonial history, both epic and intimate, and a thrilling revelation' Adam Rutherford

'Mind-blowing . . . this is how history should be told' Benjamin Zephaniah

In this groundbreaking new history, Caroline Dodds Pennock recovers the long-marginalised stories of the Indigenous Americans who - as enslaved people, diplomats, explorers, servants and traders - left a profound impact on European civilisation in the 'Age of Discovery'. On Savage Shores is a sweeping account of power and influence in America and Europe - one which could forever change the way we understand our global history.
