More Description

Against the romantic, dramatic, often treacherous backdrop of the sea, this lavishly illustrated book describes the lives--historical, fictional and mythical--of pirates, passionate rebels in pursuit of new lands and fortunes through the ages. Here is a fascinating look into the world of these brigands and buccaneers, both male and female--from that "swaggering, merciless brute," Blackbeard, to the famous female pirates, Anne Bonny and Mary Read. Includes stunning reproductions of paintings and engravings by Holbein, Tintoretto, Howard, Andrew Wyeth, and dramatic literary and historical tales like the travels of Odysseus, Sir Francis Drake, Raleigh, and the Barbery pirates.
