Product description

Review

'Fascinating... beyond rip-roaring adventure stories from the distant past, [the book offers] an opportunity to understand pirates as they truly were--and to be grateful that the worst of them, at least, are gone.' New York Times Book Review

'This breezy, fast-moving book is filled with exciting action and colorful characters. It will provide general readers and those with a special interest in the period much enjoyment.' Booklist

'Disregard Robert Louis Stevenson's rowdy buccaneers, the Disney factory's lively rascals and those musical lads from Penzance: Here are the real pirates of the Caribbean, and the facts are as colorful and exciting as fiction.' Kirkus Reviews

'It's a rollicking tale, filled with rich details of the lives of men who, for their own personal gain, challenged the spread of empires.' Times-Picayune

'The first incisive look at the world of Blackbeard, Stede Bonnet, Anne Bonny, and their compatriots, and it illuminates as never before one of the most storied yet misunderstood episodes in our past.' Willliam C. Davis, author of The Pirates Laffite

'A rollicking, gangplank-swaying read of a book ...This scrupulously researched book strikes a balance of human interest, romance, drama, war, and historical fact--all key ingredients for an excellent read.' Caribbean Beat
