Listing Detail Tabs

The Pacific Islands are made up of tiny atolls scattered across 16,000 km of sea. Isolated and at the mercy of unpredictable waters and extremes of weather, the islands are sparsely populated and, until more recent times, barely charted. The area became a magnet for pirates and adventurers, and many romantic mysterious tales abound.

This is a collection of some of the most fascinating: there are stories of shark attacks; pirate gold; disappearing boats; sunken wrecks; and informal kingdoms. There are schooners and brigantines, freebooters and privateers, incredible journeys as well as the realities of daily life on these tiny coral outcrops. These stories are not just exciting and entertaining, they are also true. The author was personally involved in some, and has gathered information on others from people who were there, and from their close friends and relatives.
