THE REPUBLIC OF PIRATES Being the True and Surprising Story of the Caribbean Pirates and the Man Who Brought Them Down

by | Read by Lewis Grenville

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

This long work describes the short-lived pirate "republic" that existed in the Caribbean and around the Bahamas in the early eighteenth century. This "cooperative," as it has also been called, was led by a trio of buccaneers, one of whom was Edward "Blackbeard" Teach. In order to regain control of their colonies, the authorities hired a former privateer to retake the Bahamas and put down the pirates. This amazing tale is adroitly narrated by Lewis Grenville. While his deep, somewhat gravelly yet resonant voice never wavers, his easygoing understated manner, at times, becomes monotonous.
