“Pirates, Buccaneers, Marooners, those cruel but picturesque sea wolves who once infested the Spanish Main, all live in present-day conceptions in great degree as drawn by the pen and pencil of Howard Pyle…It is improbable that anyone else will ever bring his combination of interest and talent to the depiction of these old-time Pirates, any more than there could be a second Remington to paint the now extinct Indians and gun-fighters of the Great West.” So writes Merle Johnson, who has here gathered together in one volume all of the nineteenth-century author-artist’s classic pirate stories that had been scattered through many magazines and books. Well-researched and with richly drawn characters, Pyle’s work will appeal to students of history and adventure lovers alike.
