Great Pirate Stories

It was a bold hardy world--this of ours--up to the advent of our giant-servant, Steam,--every foot of which was won by fierce conquest of one sort or another. Out of this past the pirate emerges as a romantic, even at times heroic, figure. This final niche, despite his crimes, cannot altogether be denied him. A hero he is and will remain so long as tales of the sea are told. This link for educational purpose only. Please remove file from your computer after familiarization.

“Masterpieces of pirate literature, tales of sea fights, land forays, wreck, pillory and buried treasure, written by great storytellers. This is a book for the reading table, an anthology to read again and again. Each story is complete. French has searched literature for the most thrilling tales. Read of the roaring buccaneers of the Spanish Main, the corsairs of the Deathly Shore, of sinking ships, lost armadas, and death on the ocean.” -The Dial, Volume 73, July, 1922

“The best stories contained in literature about pirates, each one a famous masterpiece, complete and artfully told…A unique anthology, every word of it absorbing, by the compiler of Great Sea Stories.” -The Atlantic, Volume 130, July, 1922
