Fiction, Fact & Fancy concerning the Buccaneers & Marooners of the Spanish Main, including Captain Blackbeard, Jack Ballister, Captain Morgan, Blueskin the Pirate, Captain Scarfield and Tom Chist. "It is improbable that anyone else will ever bring his combination of interest and talent to the depiction of these old-time Pirates, any more than there could be a second Remington to paint the now extinct Indians and gun-fighters of the Great West." - Foreword. (Doyle p. 225).
