"Most 17th and 18th century pirates came from New England and New York. They spent winters in the tropics pilaging and came north to rob in the summer months. Most of their treasures were buried here, closer to their homes, yet little has been uncovered. This book tells about the most notorious pirates who frequented the New England coast, including Kidd and Blackbeard, and describes treasure, thus far found mostly on the outer islands, and where unfound treasures might be uncovered."

There were many pirates roaming the North Atlantic,Mediterranean,Red Sea and Indian Ocean, in constant search of vessels filled with rich cargoes. The new little settlements cropping up in New England,many of them populated with"thieves,criminals and vagrants sent as slaves and servants," traded for food and merchadise in all the seas of the world. Therefore,it's little wonder that most 17th and 18th century pirates were New Englanders.This book is about them,with as many clues available as to where they stashed their unclaimed treasures,and what has been uncovered thusfar.There is good reason why most of the notorious buccaneers buried their riches here,and not on foreign soil-read on, and maybe you'll reap where they have sown.
