Publisher's Summary

The 16th and 17th centuries saw the emergence of a new threat to government and organized society. Privateers and pirates raided along the coast of powerful countries and were, at times, at war with England, France, and Spain. They developed their own system of rules, a code of morality, and a very rough form of government. Pirates were eventually able to organize behind a captain who eventually would become like a governor with judicial power over all the pirates and control over settlements taken by the pirates in raids.

Not even worth $4

Would you try another book from Randall Morris and/or Ronald Clarkson?

Very doubtful.

What was most disappointing about Randall Morris’s story?

Didn't learn anything.

What about Ronald Clarkson’s performance did you like?

At least I could hear and understand it.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

Far too short. Dull monotone narration. Nothing here that you can't learn for free in a few minutes on Wikipedia.
