    Primary Source

    More important than anything this is written during the Golden Age of Atlantic Piracy. This is the main book that I am using to write my senior paper. It is one of the most regarded books in it's field and for good reason. This is good for the casual history buff, or hardcore historian researching major topics.

    Excellent and Very Interesting!

    This book is somewhat difficult to read because of the wordy rambling style of the time. But it is so interesting, though I question if all the details about every pirate is accurate. Back in the 1700's recordkeeping was haphazard at its best and nonexistent at its worse. However, this is the main source for whatever has been written about pirates since then. Captain Charles Johnson, the author, could have been a pseudonym. Historians do believe he was a seafaring man and probably knew some of the individual pirates he wrote about: Blackbeard, Anne Bonny, Mary Read, Calico Jack Rackham, Bartholomew Roberts, Charles Vane, etc. I highly recommend this book to history buffs.
