The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent shape, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

"Fifteen men on a dead man's chest..." Hoist the Jolly Roger to the topmast, crowd on all the canvas, and, while the green seas go swirling by, yo-ho for the life of a pirate! For here it is, in another of Phyllis Fenner's top-notch story collections this time about that swaggering, swashbuckling, uproarious breed of men: the buccaneers.

Here the tall-masted brigs and the Spanish galleons, richly laden, scud before the wind. The rakish pirate sloops storm over the horizon, their black flags billowing. The thundering broadsides of shot, the clashing swords and cutlasses, and the wild howls of pirate mobs resound. Through seaport towns strut swarthy, evil-looking men with dirks at their waist sashes and gold rings in their ears. And by moonlight, along lonely dunes, strange stealthy figures creep with treasure chests and spades. Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, Stede Bonnet and Jean Lafitte, pirate captains, live again.

It's a rousing life of adventure, and these stories will take you back to it on the breath of the salt wind that blows through their pages.

There's variety a-plenty. A few of the stories: Tom Chist and the Treasure Box by Howard Pyle; Blackbeard by Anne Malcolmson; The Pirates of Charles Town Harbor by Rupert Sargent Holland; Pirate Gold by Charles Coppock.

Illustrated with Manning DeV. Lee's spirited drawings.
