    “Talty’s vigorous history of seventeenth-century pirates of the Caribbean will sate even fickle Jack Sparrow fans. . . . A pleasure to read from bow to stern.”
    —Entertainment Weekly

    The passion and violence of the age of exploration and empire come to vivid life in this story of the legendary pirate who took on the greatest military power on earth with a ragtag bunch of renegades. Awash with bloody battles, political intrigues, natural disaster, and a cast of characters more compelling, bizarre, and memorable than any found in a Hollywood swashbuckler,Empire of Blue Water brilliantly re-creates the life and times of Henry Morgan and the real pirates of the Caribbean.

    • Should be required reading in secondary schools.

      This is one of the very best books of historical nature I have read in the past twenty years. Although I confess to being a bit prejudiced towards anything dealing with sailing and the 1600s->mid 1800s, and to being one of Patrick O'Brian's most stalwart readers, rarely is there a book so well written and so pleasant to read as 'Empire of Blue Water'. I am bent on ordering several copies as gifts..
