Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters reveals the 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. Deftly blending scholarship and drama (Richard Zacks), 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 the towering Blackbeard, the ill-fated Captain Kidd, and sadistic Edward Low, who delighted in torturing his prey. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Black Flags, Blue Waters is a tour de force history (Michael Pierce, Midwestern Rewind) of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.
