Captain Kidd has gone down in history as America's most ruthless buccaneer. Over the centuries, novelists, treasure hunters, and even historians have stoked his legend. But it turns out that most everyone, even respected scholars, have the story all wrong. Captain William Kidd was no career cutthroat; he was a tough, successful New York sea captain, a privateer, who was hired to chase pirates. In 1696, he set out in a lone ship with a mutinous crew, heading 4,000 miles round the tip of Africa to track down a handful of vicious pirates led by one Robert Culliford and bring back their treasure to the governor of New York. At the end of the journey, one man would hang and the other would walk away... an authentic pirate story for grownups--from publisher's description.
