Upon every ocean and sea, pirates have been ready to plunder, to rob, and to murder for profit. England has always been a nation of mariners, and the West Country has for centuries been one of the busiest parts of maritime England. It is natural, therefore, that a great many of the pirates of history have been English, and that a good proportion of those have been men of the West. Discover the handful of true West Country pirates of the past and also those that voyaged from the West to the Caribbean and Indian Ocean in this compelling history. Herein lies a true account of piracy, often called the 'oldest trade afloat'. Indeed, it is older than the golden age represented in the literature of Stevenson and Barrie, and more widespread than portrayed by Hollywood. These are the true accounts that inspired the pirate fiction we know today.
