    Some good books to recommend. I read these last year.

    "The Republic of Pirates" by Colin Woodward Nonfiction. Fantastic historical book. Covers roughly from 1696 to 1730. This was so good, I read it twice.

    "Under the Black Flag" by David Cordingly Nonfiction. Good book. Covered some areas not covered in "The Republic". Got the impression, however, that the author rushed the last third of the book.

    "A Pirate of Exquisite Mind" by Diana and Michael Preston Nonfiction. Excellent book about the life of William Dampier. Explorer, naturalist, and buccaneer. Circumnavigated the globe three times in an age where crossing the Pacific was a major feat. And he reached Australia eighty years before Captain Cook. He was also the first explorer to visit five continents.

    "The Pirate Hunter" by Richard Zachs Nonfiction. Very good historical book covering the true story of Captain Kidd.
