9780786884513: The Pirate Hunter: The True Story of Captain Kidd

A literary treasure, The Pirate Hunter is a masterpiece of historical detective work, and a rare, authentic pirate story for grown-ups.

Captain Kidd has gone down in history as America's most ruthless buccaneer, fabulously rich, burying dozens of treasure chests up and down the eastern seaboard. But it turns out that most everyone, even many respected scholars, have the story all wrong. Captain William Kidd was no career cut-throat; he was a tough, successful New York sea captain who was hired to chase pirates. His three-year odyssey aboard the aptly named Adventure galley pitted him against arrogant Royal Navy commanders, jealous East India Company captains, storms, starvation, angry natives, and, above all, flesh-and-blood pirates. Superbly written and impeccably researched, The Pirate Hunter is one ripping good yarn.

About the Author:

Richard Zacks is a graduate of the Columbia Journalism School, a former syndicated columnist for the New York Daily News, and a freelance journalist for Atlantic Monthly, Time, the Village Voice, London Times, Life, and other publications.

From AudioFile:

Zacks takes the thrilling historical figure of Captain Kidd and makes his story even more dazzling by presenting the realities of buccaneer life, warts and all. Michael Prichard's expert delivery enhances these details, as does his spirited delivery of a pirate ditty. It's interesting to learn that Kidd was not the cutthroat he is often portrayed to be but rather a kind of bounty hunter. Zacks has a knack for presenting information that is fascinating--whether or not you're interested in pirate lore. Prichard maintains a sense of irony as the story moves to its conclusion. This is a perfect choice for anyone who enjoys armchair adventure. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
