Why We Love Pirates: The Hunt for Captain Kidd and How He Changed Piracy Forever
Why We Love Pirates: The Hunt for Captain Kidd and How He Changed Piracy Forever3 1 5 Author: Rebecca Simon Narrator: Kate Mulligan
The more pirates were hunted and executed, the more people became supportive of them. They felt for the “Robin Hoods of the Sea”—both because they saw the British’s treatment of them as an injustice and because they treasured the goods that pirates brought to them. These historical events were pivotal in creating the portrayal of pirates as we know them today. They grew into romantic antiheroes—which ultimately led to characters like the mischievous but lovable Captain Jack Sparrow. Simon has presented her research on the history of pirates around the world, and now she’s bringing the spectacular story of Captain Kidd to her readers.
