Howes, 2006 - 426 páginas
History. The gripping real-life adventures of the original pirate of the Caribbean. Bestselling popular non-fiction. Recovered from original sources, this is the fascinating true story of Bartholomew Roberts, one of the most successful and deadly pirates in all of history. Bartholomew Roberts, also known as Black Barty, went to sea at a young age and took to the life well. He accumulated over fifty-one million pounds worth of treasure and took close to four hundred ships throughout the Americas, Africa and Europe. He was fearless in battle but good to his prisoners and fair to his crew. He is believed to be the first pirate to fly the skull and crossbones. Despite his brief career, Roberts created a reputation that can never be surpassed. "Vividly depicts the harsh reality of Pirate life, with all the squalor, disease, temptation, fear, triumph and debauchery that it entailed." - Tenby Observer.
