With tales of vicious mutineers, imperial riches and high-seas intrigue, Black Flags, Blue Waters reanimates the “Golden Age” of piracy.
“A masterly and vivid account of the pirates who operated around America's coasts in the late 1600s and early 1700s. Using an impressive array of sources, Eric Jay Dolin throws a fresh light on familiar stories, unearths some new and surprising facts, and skillfully sets the exploits of a notorious generation of pirates in their historical context.” — David Cordingly, author of Under the Black Flag
“Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period... Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.” — Sea Breezes
