In the 17th and 18th centuries, sailing from Europe or Africa to the Americas, or trading from India to Central America, was a risky undertaking. Ferocious storms and barely-understood diseases weren't the only threats; ruthless pirates lurked on the horizon, craving wealth and reputation. In Pirates, Buccaneers, the Republic and the Caribbean, we cover everything you need to know about the legendary Golden Age of Piracy. * Uncover the true stories of the bloodthirsty buccaneers who made their fortune plundering the high seas, from Captain Kidd and Edward `Blackbeard' Teach to female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. * Find out what life was really like aboard a pirate ship, from the roles of the crew to divvying out the spoils. * Investigate the founding and exploits of the notorious Flying Gang, a band of fierce pirate captains, and the piratical haven they founded on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas. Packed with incredible illustrations and insights into the period, this is the perfect guide for anyone who wants to learn about this famed Golden Age of Piracy.
