Pirates: Predators of the Seas: An Illustrated History
Angus Konstam (au); Roger Michael Kean (au); David Cordingly (in)
Reveals the truth behind our myths, fairy-tales, and Hollywood-inspired images of pirates. The reality is, unbelievably, even more intriguing than the flashing swords, talking parrots, and eye patches portrayed in the movies. In this lavishly illustrated tour through history, you can explore the lives of real pirates, such as Blackbeard, Thomas Tew, and Captain Kidd. Find out how, even today, pirates regularly attack and plunder ships. Discover their motivations, diverse backgrounds, daily lives, and codes of conduct. Peek inside pirate ships, trace their journeys on the map, see their bloody battles, and thrill at the daring, brutal ways in which they live and die. “Fascinating and colorful, this book dispels falsehoods and illuminates the truth about pirates.”
