Most of this book was great. Other than that this was a very worthwhile book for anyone interested on the truth about pirates. The only section I had to slog through was in the Appendix, The Corsair by Lord Byron.

Awash with skullduggery, malice, terror, and opportunism, here are 28 first-hand memoirs and contemporary reports of the most famous pirates to sail the seven seas, including Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, ‘Calico Jack' Rackham, Anne Bonney, and Jean Lafitte. These range from the Golden Age of piracy, beginning in the mid 16th century with the birth of the ‘buccaneers' in the Caribbean, to more recent times. Some of the accounts covered are Francis ‘Scourge of Spain' Drake's audacious night treasure raid on Nombre de Dios, the capture of Panama by Henry Morgan, cruelest of the ‘Brethren of the Coast', Alexander Exquemelin's fly-on-the-wall telling of the ‘wicked order of pirates or robbers of the sea,' and the journal of William Dampier which was found stashed in a hollow bamboo tube, after he fled life as a Somerset farmer. In addition, this book offers the Pirate's Code of Honour (article 4: lights out at eight o'clock, 'if after that hour any still remained inclined to drinking, to do it on open deck'), a listing of pirate songs, and a full pirate chronology.

Engaging summer reading. Good introduction to the subject. Some might find it slightly dry in that British historical sort of way, but exceptionally well researched and foot-noted. As accurate an account of such things as is possible. I enjoyed it.

nice condition.
Amazing book, chock full of facts from the horses mouth. Many of the tales printed are from actual journals, documents, diaries, manifests etc so its very interesting to hear first hand stories of these tales. Some of them are a little hard to follow as most of the author wrote in 3rd person but other than that its awesome.
