Out of the Sea Came Pirates/The Golden Age of Piracy in Hampton Roads by Mark St. John Erickson, The Daily Press, 2012. Hampton Roads and the lower Chesapeake Bay played landmark roles in the golden age of piracy, overshadowing virtually every other part of what became the United States. No other body of water in North America was fought over so frequently - or produced so many tales about its long and often bloody links to the brigands of the sea. Here are some of those stories. Available in print for $13 and eBook for $9 at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com.
