We discover that Wales gave us the most notorious pirate in Elizabethan times, John Callice of Tintern; Admiral Sir Henry Morgan, the greatest privateer of all time a century later; and the most successful pirate in history, Black Bart Roberts of Casnewydd Bach, whose death ended 'the Golden Age of Piracy'.

Table of Contents:
This is Breverton's eighth book upon pirates and privateers, and this is a revised and updated version of his The Book of Welsh Pirates and Buccaneers (2003), which was a Welsh Books Council 'Book of the Month'. One review called it 'an immense work of great scholarship... effectively, a study of the whole genre of piracy... exemplary, yet the writing is light and accessible... wonderful, fascinating detail and essential reading.'
