Blackbeard the Pirate: A Reappraisal of His Life and Times based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
For years I have read about and studied piracy. Blackbeard, the Pirate is one of my most dogearred reference books. Everything that is stated in this book has been meticulously footnoted. I've read the book at least twice cover to cover and look up details as I need them for my own writing. I recommend this book to teachers who want to teach facts about piracy to their students. Pirate movies are fun, but they're full of myths and legends and sometimes just a little silly.
I purchased this book hoping to hear about the history and stories of Blackbeard, which about 20% of what I read did sketch thru the story of Teach. The majority of my reading seemed to surprisingly discuss more about corrupt politions of the time. I finally gave up after 12 chapters. ( Ho, Hum)
