Description

For two years, until his untimely death in 1718, the notorious pirate wreaked havoc on Atlantic coastal shipping. Many tales have been told about the bold deeds of this tall and wild sea rover, but few know about a daring crime that linked Blackbeard with the highest levels of government, a crime that would send two colonies to war and foreshadow the American Revolution. In her page-turning narrative based on a true story, Margaret Hoffman spins a tale of political intrigue, villainy and romance. Her infamous pirate emerges as a man of considerable charm and gallantry who not only becomes the confidant of the governor of North Carolina, but also wins the heart of a beautiful young heiress. Legends and myths about Blackbeard continue three centuries after his death, but the true story is the most incredible of all. With the recent discovery of Blackbeard's sunken ship, 'Queen Anne's Revenge', this book is sure to become as much a treasure as that ill-fated but much sought after shipwreck.
