Pirates and the treasures they buried were Edward Rowe Snow's favorite topics, and here he describes them with all the relish of a dedicated historian and master storyteller. You will learn of Captain Quelch, who brought gold to New England; Captain Phillips, whose head was pickled; Charles Gibbs, who was hanged at New York; and the husband and wife pirates of Nova Scotia. In tales ranging from the Canadian Maritimes to Florida, Snow also details the skullduggery of Captains Bellamy, Low, Kidd, Teach (alias Blackbeard), and many others.
