Summary
"The World Atlas of Pirates takes a whole new look at the story of piracy. Combining stunning cartography with engaging and authoratative text, it cuts away at the myths to reveal the world of "real" pirates--whose stories, wile every bit as colorful and compelling as those of their counterparts from legends and Hollywood, may not be quite so romantic"--Cover, p. 2
