The Adventures of Peter Williamson - Frances McDonnell. This is a true story of a sad period in the history of Aberdeen, Scotland when, between the years of 1740-1744, a number of merchants, magistrates and shipmasters organised the abduction of local children in order to sell them as slaves in the American Plantations. Peter Williamson was one who suffered such a fate when he was ten years old. He not only lived to tell the tale, but after an eventful few years during which he was again captured, this time by North American Indians, he returned to his home town to pursue the writing of his memoirs.
