A General History of the Pyrates (Dover Maritime)

by Daniel Defoe  (Author)                             


Immensely readable history by the author of Robinson Crusoeincorporates the author's celebrated flair for journalistic detail, and represents the major source of information about piracy in the early 18th century. Defoe recounts the daring and bloody deeds of such outlaws as Edward Teach (alias Blackbeard), Captain Kidd, Mary Read, Anne Bonny, many others.
