Buccaneers and Pirates of our Coasts is a non-fiction, rolicking story of the origins of piracy and of the famous pirates of the coasts of the United States. The stories don’t cast pirates in the glowing light of modern day renditions – in Stockton’s stories, pirates are bad guys! – but the dramatic style makes them good fun to read, anyway! (Summary by Sibella Denton)
Provides an understanding of how things were viewed in the late 1800's. Nicely narrated and enjoyable.
This book is a woke American progressive's dream book. It manages to "subtly" criticize aspects of American history from a safe distance of about a couple hundred years in the future, while managing to maintain a facade of respect for the historical figures involved.
