KIRKUS REVIEW

From the Barbary Coast to the cimarrons of the Caribbean, here is piracy at its best, told through briskly written anecdotes and life histories of many of its better known exponents. Dragut whose technicolored career began with an apprenticeship to the bloody Barbarossa brothers who plundered North Africa and Spain; Nathaniel North- the pirate perhaps most loved by his men; Blackbeard; Edward Low and his terrorization of the New England coast- these and more are the heroes. Each story concentrates on the man's career, giving personal and political background material where needed and an appendix which lists pirate terms, laws and expressions.
