Black Flags, Blue Waters: The Epic History of America's Most Notorious Pirates

By Eric Jay Dolin
"Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, [this book] reveals the ... history of American piracy's 'Golden Age'spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700swhen lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and beyond ... Dolin illustrates how American colonists at first supported these outrageous pirates in an early display of solidarity against the Crown, and then violently opposed them. Through ... episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period, among them towering Blackbeard, ill-fated Captain Kidd, and sadistic Edward Low, who delighted in torturing his prey

A masterly and vivid account of the pirates who operated around America's coasts in the late 1600s and early 1700s. Using an impressive array of sources, Eric Jay Dolin throws a fresh light on familiar stories, unearths some new and surprising facts, and skillfully sets the exploits of a notorious generation of pirates in their historical context.--David Cordingly, author of Under the Black Flag
