More About Pirate Hunter of the Caribbean by David Cordingly
 
 
 
Overview
From renowned pirate historian David Cordingly, author of "Under the Black Flag "and film consultant for the original "Pirates of the Caribbean, " comes the thrilling story of Captain Woodes Rogers, the avenging nemesis of the worst cutthroats ever to terrorize the high seas. Once a marauding privateer himself, Woodes Rogers went from laying siege to laying down the law. During Britain s war with Spain, Rogers sailed for the crown in sorties against Spanish targets in the Pacific; battled scurvy, hurricanes, and mutinies; captured a treasure galleon; and even rescued the castaway who inspired "Robinson Crusoe." Appointed governor of the Bahamas in 1717, the fearless Rogers defended the island colony of King George I against plundering pirates and an attempted Spanish invasion. His resolute example led to the downfall of such notorious pirates as Blackbeard, Calico Jack, and the female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. A vividly detailed and action-packed portrait of one of the early eighteenth century s most colorful characters, "Pirate Hunter of the Caribbean" serves up history that s as fascinating and gripping as any seafaring legend."
