Captain Kidd has gone down in history as America's most ruthless buccaneer, fabulously rich, burying treasure up and down the eastern seaboard. But it turns out that most everyone, from novelists to scholars, has the story all wrong. Captain William Kidd was no career cutthroat; he was a tough successful New York sea captain who was hired to chase pirates in the 1690s. His three-year odyssey aboard the aptly named ADVENTURE GALLEY would pit him against arrogant Royal navy commanders, jealous East India Company captains, storms, starvation, angry natives, and, above all, flesh-and-blood pirates. Captain Kidd found himself facing a long-forgotten rogue by the name of Robert Culliford, who lured Kidds crew to mutiny not once, but twice. THE PIRATE HUNTER delivers something rare: an authentic pirate story for grown-ups. Available in Soft Cover.
