Book Description
================
Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters
reveals the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy's "Golden Age" -
spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700s - when lawless pirates plied
the coastal waters of North America and beyond. Best-selling author Eric Jay
Dolin illustrates how American colonists at first supported these outrageous
pirates in an early display of solidarity against the Crown, and then violently
opposed them. 

Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin
depicts the star pirates of this period, among them towering Blackbeard, ill-
fated Captain Kidd, and sadistic Edward Low, who delighted in torturing his
prey. Also brilliantly detailed are the pirates' manifold enemies, including
colonial governor John Winthrop and evangelist Cotton Mather.

Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this
wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the
precarious nature of American colonial life.
