Black Flags, Blue Waters

The Epic History of America's Most Notorious Pirates
Written by Eric Jay Dolin | Narrated by Paul Brion
Enter the Golden Age of piracy in this enthralling account that regales us with the history of pirates who ravaged the 17th-century seas — from Blackbeard to Captain Kidd and more. “A fascinating adventure story filled with rogues, rascals, and ruthless renegades… This is stirring history that reads like a novel” (Stephen Puleo, author of Dark Tide).

PUBLISHER 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.
