100 Hikes in the Alpine Lakes by Ira Spring, Harvey Manning

Awash with skullduggery, malice, terror, and opportunism, here are 28 first-hand memoirs and contemporary reports of the most famous pirates to sail the seven seas, including Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, Calico Jack Rackham, Anne Bonney, and Jean Lafitte. These range from the Golden Age of piracy, beginning in the mid 16th century with the birth of the buccaneers in the Caribbean, to more recent times. Some of the accounts covered are Francis Scourge of Spain Drakes audacious night treasure raid on Nombre de Dios, the capture of Panama by Henry Morgan, cruelest of the Brethren of the Coast, Alexander Exquemelins fly-on-the-wall telling of the wicked order of pirates or robbers of the sea, and the journal of William Dampier which was found stashed in a hollow bamboo tube, after he fled life as a Somerset farmer. In addition, this book offers the Pirates Code of Honour (article 4: lights out at eight oclock, if after that hour any still remained inclined to drinking, to do it on open deck), a listing of pirate songs, and a full pirate chronology.
