Meet the rogues who gave pirates their bad name. William Fly took a promotion from lowly boatswain to captain when he promised the crew untold wealth if they "turned pirate." They threw the captain of the Elizabeth overboard in the middle of the Atlantic and proceeded to pillage and plunder. Depicted in all his underhanded and dangerous glory is Captain Crabbe who ended up shipwrecked on a Caribbean island, his treasure--and his glass eye - sunk to the bottom of the ocean.

From the exploits of sixteenth-century pirates in the Caribbean to the nefarious deeds of the Corsairs in the Mediterranean, Clare Hibbert and John James have created an illustrated collection of gripping and dastardly tales from around the globe. This book tells the true tales of who the pirates were and explores along the way all the tools, ships and talents they needed for their now classic skullduggery.
