They sailed the seas, pillaging and plundering, crammed into ships no longer than a railroad car. Worms ate the food and munched on the ships' hulls. Life was hard for the bloodthirsty captain and crew, but if they survived the rancid and maggoty grub, the fighting, the fevers, and the malodorous mates with all body parts intact; if they avoided drowning, capture, and swinging from the gallows, there was adventure to be had and a fortune to be made. Discover the real and revolting stories of these robbers of the seas with this thrilling, no-holds-barred full-color illustrated book.
