Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fascinating study of the pirates of the 17th and 18th centuries examines the lives and deeds of Henry Morgan, Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Anne Bonney, and others, finding the lore about these maritime marauders largely overblown. "Highly entertaining and well-documented." — The New York Times. 35 black-and-white illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

Armed with court records and other first-hand evidence, Pringle revisits myths about marauders such as Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, Anne Bonney and Mary Read in an attempt to separate fact from fiction. Originally published by W.W. Norton in 1953.
