Separating the myth from reality, author Dan Conlin explains how piracy came to Atlantic Canada from rival European empires who sought to conquer and settle North America.
This book is the story of true pirate lives and their echoes in folklore and popular culture. It exposes their surprisingly democratic codes, lavish dress, and extensive collections of weapons which are illustrated by full-colour photographs of rare museum and privately-owned artifacts.Author: Dan Conlin
