With the blockbuster popularity of Pirates of the Caribbean, it seems everyone today is fascinated by these high sea bandits! So give a big yo-ho-ho and plunge into this enjoyable study of piracy from the ancient world to the present day—especially the "golden age" in the 16th-and 17th-century. Find out what sort of men became pirates, what types of ship they used, where they were active, and what measures authorities took to control them. Of course, the notorious names are all here, from Edward Teach (Blackbeard) and Captain Kidd to lady pirates such as Grace O'Malley and Anne Bonney.
