    The pirate coast is not exactly a pirate book, but a good read none-the-less

    This book takes place during the time when the United States was a new country, before the civil war. The northern coast of Africa had many kingdoms ruled by tyrants who demanded ransoms and attacked ships that was not part of a nation that had a treaty with there government. The USS Philadelphia tries to blockade Tripoli. It fails and is captured. The crew are treated as slaves. The "King" of Tripoli demands ransom. The United States' first secret agent mission takes place when the US sends a crew to burn the stolen ship. Later a man goes looking for the rightful ruler of Tripoli buys an army and sets across the desert.

    For me it took a while to read. This book has the parts where you just can't stop reading, and the parts where the book gets a bit boring. I would recommend this to someone who enjoys US history. This book is not exactly a pirate book, quite a lot of the story takes place on land.
