Publisher Comments:

“Avast there, me hearty!”

From Long John Silver to Captain Hook, from Blackbeard to Captain Kidd, pirates have made off with our imaginations for centuries with their charisma and adventurous living. Truth be told, these capricious cutthroats are not only figures of horror but also of vicarious delight.

Incredible Pirate Tales captures the most incredible stories of actual and fictional characters who took up the “black flag” and a life on the high seas. In these pages meet LOlonnois the Cruel, the most notorious and wicked pirate of his day, whose ardent cravings for plunder sailed him down a path of treachery and brutality. Witness the rise of a pirate named Peter, who successfully manages his career and settles in France, where he retires as a gentleman. Learn about the exploits, arrests, and executions of infamous sea wolves such as Jean Lafitte, Captain Charles Vane, and the Joassammee Pirates of the Persian Gulf. From the women who married them to their hostages and slaves, from the sailors defending their ships against attack to the legendary pirates themselves, everyone has an astonishing tale to tell. There are even accounts of ghost pirates seeking revenge on their enemies and reclaiming stolen treasure.

This bloody band of buccaneers sailed together, caroused together, pillaged and plundered together, and, like most outlaws, died together. From the top of the hawks nest to the depths of the galleys, this rousing collection of stories

vividly captures the pirates most savage and glorious existence.

Synopsis:

Audacious pirate stories  that fire our sense of adventure and romance.

Synopsis:

Incredible Pirate Tales captures the most audacious tales of actual and fictional characters who took up the “black flag” and a life of crime on the high seas.

*Books on pirates and their escapades are irresistable

*Anthologies of classic stories make great gifts
