Overview

While the well-known pirates Captain Kidd and Blackbeard took about thirty ships between them, Black Bart Roberts was among the most successful in his profession, taking more than four hundred ships in his brief career.
Noted author Terry Breverton here presents a pirate who was no mere gap-toothed swashbuckling drunkard. A teetotaling Christian, Black Bart Roberts dressed in red silk from head to toe, wore a tremendous diamond cross, and ordered his musicians to play hymns on Sunday. He is remembered for bringing transatlantic shipping virtually to a standstill and for commanding multinational crews of freed slaves and senior pirates who called themselves "the House of Lords."
This fascinating history details the life of the last buccaneer of the "Golden Age of Piracy"--beginning its account of Roberts at age thirteen in 1695 and continuing to his death in 1722--and is highlighted with vintage maps and illustrations, as well as a list of ships he seized during his career.
