PIRATE HUNTER The Life Of Captain Woodes Rogers

PIRATE HUNTER
The Life Of Captain Woodes Rogers 
The story of privateer turned pirate-hunter Captain Woodes Rogers, who in the early 18th century plundered and buccaneered his way around the Spanish Main - only to end as the respectable Governor of the Bahamas. A real life yarn from the pages of Treasure Island.
On 2 August 1708 Captain Woodes Rogers set sail from Bristol with two ships, the Duke and Duchess, on an epic voyage of circumnavigation that was to make him famous. His mission was to attack, plunder and pillage Spanish ships wherever he could. And, as Graham Thomas shows in this tense and exciting narrative, after a series of pursuits and sea battles he returned laden with booty and with a reputation as one of the most audacious and shrewd fighting captains of the age. He was then appointed governor of the Bahamas by George I with the task of suppressing the pirates who roamed this corner of the Caribbean and preyed on its shipping. He was equally successful as a privateer and pirate-hunter in an age when brutality and ruthlessness were the law of the sea.
