In the Golden Age of Piracy, swashbuckling sea robbers were a terror to merchant ships loaded with the riches of the New World. Men like Henry Morgan, Edward Low, George Lowther, Stede Bonnet, and women like Mary Read and Anne Bonny, rampaged through the islands of the Caribbean and along the coast of the American colonies. North Carolina had more than their fair share of dealings with pirates, because North Carolina's 300-mile coastline was a perfect place for buccaneers to hide. And in many cases, the people of the Carolinas welcomed them! This book tells the story of those colorful rogues who robbed and pillaged at will, including Blackbeard, that most famous of sea robbers. You'll also learn what the life of a pirate was really like, and how these thieves of the high seas were nothing like the happy rovers usually seen in the movies.
