kings and nobles, many men embraced piracy as a means to support their families and live a comfortable life, though one often filled with barbarous acts The author weaves a fascinating story about piracy and the legendary 18th century pirate ship Whydah, which sunk off the coast of Cape Cod on April 24, 1717, during a perfect storm He delves into the fates of the few survivors, early salvage

the Whydah, and for 30 years, divers, marine historians, and archaeologists have continued to retrieve artifacts from the ocean depths Occasional sidebars on specific topics, such as the mythic
