Buccaneers & Pirates of Our Coasts

Sale price$16.75


From the very beginnings, America has been a fertile hunting ground for high seas rogues willing to take what they wanted when they found it. Even great men like Christopher Columbus and Sir Francis Drake took a turn as sea robbers. In later years, names like Blackbeard, Low, Bonnet and Kidd struck terror into the hearts of merchant captains, sailors and the civilian passengers they carried across the waves. North Carolina's 300 miles of coastline, dotted with secluded coves and inlets, became a favorite haunt of pirates and buccaneers. In this book, first published in 1898, author Frank R. Stockton tells the stories of the villians who plundered the high seas and plagued America's coasts during our country's early years. With original illustrations enhanced by additional maps and pictures, this new rendition of a classic book about the men and women who sailed under the Black Flag is sure to please
