Pirates! encompasses: historical pirates like Madame Cheng I Sao, Captain William Kidd, Sir Walter Raleigh, and Edward Blackbeard Teach- fictional buccaneers like Anne Bonny, Captain Blood, and Long John Silver- every important and noteworthy novel, play, poem, ballad, opera, and movie portraying pirates- pirate slang, havens, types of ships, weapons, symbols, practices, and pleasures- a listing of the richest booty ever captured- over a hundred illustrations (with more than a dozen paintings by Howard Pyle)- and a comprehensive bibliography.
