  • Michael

    I'm giving this book 4 stars despite the fact the title is a little misleading and I already knew a lot of the info from previous pirate related books I have read. This book, like many other pirate bo...

    As you can see from my rating, I loved this book and I think you will too, especially if you like pirates, history, or both. The only other book I've read from Cordingly is "Under The Black Flag" and ...

  • Nick Penzenstadler

    Picked this up after getting obsessed with Black Sails on Starz. This is the real story of Woodes Rogers in Nassau and famous pirates like Hornigold, Vane, Blackbeard, Anne Bonny and Jack Rackham. Cra...

  • Meg Caddy

    David Cordingly is my favourite historian and simply the best pirateologist out there. I'm pretty sure I've read every single one of his books, and this one was a delight from start to finish....
