Pirates and Buccaneers of the Atlantic Coast (Snow Centennial Editions) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Tales of Captain Kidd, Captain Bellamy, Blackbeard, and other pirates and buccaneers, related by the master maritime historian and storyteller."

Book News Annotation:

This fifth centennial edition in honor of the hundredth anniversary of Snow's birth in 1902 is "no collection of Old Wives' Tales" (as Snow warns in his preface to the first edition). Instead, he spares no detail in his descriptions of New England pirates such as Thomas Tew and Captain Bellamy, mid- and south Atlantic pirates such as Blackbeard and Captain Francis Spriggs, women pirates including Alwida and Mrs. Ching, and pirates of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Though there will always be debate among historians over the details of the lives of famous pirates, few would disagree that Rowe's versions are well-told or that they reflect a lifetime of research in the northeastern US and in England. Final chapters discuss a favorite pirate topic—searching for buried treasure.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Tales of legendary pirates who plundered the coast from Newfoundland to Florida, including Blackbeard and Captain Kidd.

About the Author

Edward Rowe Snow was a masterful storyteller famous for his tales of the sea and New England history. As the Flying Santa, he flew in small planes and helicopters over the lighthouses of New England, dropping Christmas parcels for the keepers and their families.
