Synopsis

Pirates Rogues' Gallery by John Matthews

Who were the real pirates of the Caribbean (and elsewhere)? Following on from the New York Times number one bestseller Pirates , comes Pirates: Rogues' Gallery , in which we come face to face with some of the most villainous and scurrilous rogues ever to sail the seven seas. Included are Captain Henry Morgan, who began his career as a pirate and ended as Governor of Jamaica; the notorious Blackbeard, who terrorized the Caribbean and the Atlantic seaboard of America until he met his end in a dramatic shoot-out with Captain Richard Maynard; Captain Kidd, whose legendary treasure is still sought after; and William Dampier, best known today as a pioneering explorer, but who began his adventures as a privateer on the Spanish Main. It also includes special pull out items including a pirate's journal and a fold-out pistol.
