About this title

Synopsis:

There is a fascination surrounding the subject of pirates and pirate lore that centers around the romanticized impression of lawless, brutal ruffians pillaging ships, hunting for gold and treasure, and traveling in massive ships waving the skull-and-bones flag. The golden age of piracy produced many grandiose and notorious characters whose incredible stories have found their way into this one-of-a-kind book.

Originally published in 1735, The History and Lives of Notorious Pirates and Their Crews grippingly chronicles the adventures and misadventures of the most infamous pirates who ruled the high seas at the turn of the eighteenth century. From Captain Spriggs’ rampant use of torture on his victims, to Bartholomew Robert’s incredibly successful pirating career, Blackbeard’s legendary fearsome demeanor, and Captain Kidd’s tragic end, these truly enthralling stories of privateers turned bandits will leave readers on the edge of their seats.

Though the author’s true identity is still debated, his book helped shape the very concept we hold of pirates today influencing such writers as J. M. Barrie, Rafael Sabatini, and Robert Louis Stevenson.

Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

About the Author:

Captain Charles Johnson’s true identity is still widely debated, with many believing it was Daniel Defoe’s pseudonym.

C. Lovat Fraser republished Captain Charles Johnson’s classic collection of pirate tales in 1922. He was an English artist, designer, and author. He resided in Dymchurch, England.
