Editorial Reviews


"Piracy is a subject that is dominated by tall tales and false testimony. The author has attempted to mitigate the problem by reproducing actual court proceedings. The first is a dying declaration of a convicted pirate. Dying declarations are always suspect, because they usually lack collaboration. This declaration contains the common and unlikely claim that the pirate had a fine upbringing with upstanding parents. The remaining two cases are primarily concerned with extradition law. The author's goal of offering true to life piracy is admirable..." - George E. Burns
 An adventure on the high seas.
"If you know this author's work consider yourself lucky. If not then this story is a good place to start. Set in the time of pirates and privateers it has relevance to current pirate problems in the Gulf. This story shows how pirates operated and how they were dealt with. Using actual archival material he allows the documents to inform the story.
He accomplishes this task beautifully.
Highly recommend"  Five Stars - Beagles 517

From the Author

These are actual pirate trials and dyingdeclarations of a pirate just before he was sent to the gallows.
If you like your pirate stories real, not from Hollywood, the action vividlydescribed, the sentences final, then this is the book for you.
Not flashy, no sex, no introspective passages with the exception of the condemnedpirate about ready to be hung, drawn and quartered, just real history.
The story of the steamship Chesapeake which was taken over by a band of piratesafter it left New York City on its regular voyage to Portland, Maine in 1863during the height of the Civil War in America - is told in the words of actualcourt documents.
With an eye to retaining the authenticity of the original documents, out-of-useterms are modernized only to the degree needed to explain the story. What isamazing is the outcome of the proceedings when the United States attempted tosecure the extradition of the pirates of the Chesapeake, who claimed that theywere Confederate Army regulars seizing the ship by use of authorization fromJefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy.
A mutiny of the crew of a British warship also finds its way to a United StatesFederal Courtroom. Read on and learn what happened to those vicious pirateswhen they had their day in court.
