Pirates: terror on the high seas, from the Caribbean to the South China Sea
Thoroughly researched and beautifully illustrated with a remarkable collection of pirate art and artifacts, this is the definitive history of larger-than-life but all-too-real buccaneers, freebooters, and corsairs, who for centuries spread terror all across the briny deep. From the Golden Age of Piracy on the Spanish Main to modern-day looting in the Malacca Strait, Pirates tells the thrilling and compelling story of terror on the high seas.
