The Illustrated Pirate Diaries: A Remarkable Eyewitness Account of Captain Morgan and the Buccaneers : No fiction on piracy can equal the true feats of Sir Henry Morgan and his band of buccaneers when they took on the might of Spain and terrorized settlements in the Caribbean between 1666 and 1672, culminating in the notorious capture and burning of Panama City. this vivid account, as told by one of Morgan's own men, goes inside the terrorizing exploits of the world's most infamous pirates - Pierre le Grand, Bartholomew the Portuguese, Rock the Brazilian, Lewis Scot, Francois L'Olonnais, and, of course, Sir Henry Morgan. Packed with contemporary engravings, maps, and paintings, Alexander Exquemelin's original manuscript is supported by engrossing commentary on pirate culture, environment, and strategies, written by one of the world's leading experts on buccaneers.
