On Pirates

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Simply a lot of fun!

Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life among the Pirates by David Cordingly. Of all the books on historical pirates, this is one that best captures both their reality and the myth and romance that we associate with them today.

Raiders and Rebels: The Golden Age of Piracy by Frank Sherry. A rich and vivid account of the golden age of piracy from 1692 to 1725. Not only covers the facts, but tells a story as enjoyable to read as any novel.
