Overview

The pirate ship, black flag waving high in the morning wind, veered for the second vessel, bearing on its shoreward course like a kitchen cat onto a sluggish mouse. From the quarterdeck, the Captain surveyed their latest prize as the guns were rolled out, the decks sanded, and the bulwarks taken down for the impending boarding. "Soon enough, me ‘earties," he shouted over the sails and slapping rigging, over the eager men cheering along the railings. At his mark, several cannons exploded over the other ship’s bow. "Avast!" he roared after them. "Avast ye miserable maggots or we’ll finish the lot of ya with a bloody broadside!" -- Tales of the Atlantic Pirates

Thunderous cannon fire, deadly swordplay and the ruthless pursuit of gold have stalked the high seas from the decks of black-flagged ships for centuries. Collected within are thirteen original tales based on the real-life pirates who once sailed and hunted along America's Atlantic coast. From ghostly crews and cursed islands to the capture of Blackbeard and modern-day treasure hunts, dare to follow these seafaring outlaws through more than three hundred years of American history, folklore, and adventure.
