The pirate perhaps epitomises the loveable rogue of popular legend, and our interest in pirates, both real and fictional, is enormous. This beautifully illustrated book presents the story of piracy in a completely new way. Expansive maps plot the routes that pirates followed - whether crossing the world's great oceans, or pursuing their prey through creeks and bays and wonderful illustrations bring the villains, their ships and their victims to life. The book relives adventure on the high seas, explaining how piracy grew, flourished, and was finally snuffed out.
