Description: Pirates are so much a part of legend that it is easy to forget they actually existed. Now David Cordingly, the world's foremost authority on pirates, tells who they really were and what they really did. Here are the true stories of Blackbeard, of Henry Morgan and Captain Kidd, and of the cross-dressing female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. From the brutal havoc of battle to the savage isolation of life at sea, Under the Black Flag tells how pirates governed themselves -- they were more democratic than one would think -- what they wore, what ships they used, what punishments they exacted, and how they flourished.

In a rip-roaring account of a genuinely bloodthirsty time, Cordingly expertly reveals these questions: Did pirates really have wooden legs? Did they really keep parrots for pets? Did marooning really happen? A truth more complex, more bloody, and more fascinating than we imagined is revealed in this spellbinding narrative.
