For any fan of the exploits of Para Handy and the motley crew of the Vital Spark, this memoir is not to be missed.

Today most of us know what we know about pirates from classics like Treasure Island and the films starring Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley. But who were the real pirates of the Caribbean and where did they come from? And how were they tamed? David Cordingly's latest book reveals the true story to have been at least as fascinating and gripping as... more...
