Now Shipping in Paperback... A literary treasure, The Pirate Hunter is a masterpiece of historical detective work, and a rare, authentic pirate story for grown-ups Captain Kidd has gone down in history as America's most ruthless buccaneer, fabulously rich, burying dozens of treasure chests up and down the eastern seaboard. But it turns out that most everyone, even many respected scholars, have the story all wrong. Captain William Kidd was no career cut-throat; he was a tough, successful New York sea captain who was hired to chase pirates. His three-year odyssey aboard the aptly named Adventure galley pitted him against arrogant Royal Navy commanders, jealous East India Company captains, storms, starvation, angry natives, and, above all, flesh-and-blood pirates. Superbly written and impeccably researched, The Pirate Hunter is one ripping good yarn.
From the Publisher:
The author of History Laid Bare traces the legendary career of American buccaneer Captain William Kidd, a New York sea captain hired to chase pirates, from his early voyages through his death on the gallows, and discusses the role played by Robert Culliford, a rogue and mutineer, in Kidd's downfall.
Annotation:
This biography of William Kidd reveals that he was actually a sea captain hired as a pirate hunter. Zacks evokes the seafaring world of the 18th century, and recounts the rivalry between Captain Kidd and his arch-nemesis, the all-but-forgotten pirate named Robert Culliford.
