Books and Manuscripts about pirates in the New World are an important part of the early written record of the Americas. Accounts, both fictional and true, give an added dimension to our understanding of how pirates joined explorers, settlers, traders and military men in shaping the history and culture of the newly found continent. Their adventures provide a story that continues to fascinate us today.
