Description

During the 17th century, Spain's European rivals encouraged roving bands of pirates called buccaneers to disrupt its immensely profitable New World commerce. Typically English, French, and Dutch adventurers, the buccaneers plied the waters among the Caribbean islands, and along the coasts of Central America, Venezuela, and Colombia. Alexandre Exquemelin, a French Huguenot, spent several years sailing the Caribbean as a buccaneer, mostly in the service of Captain Henry Morgan.

"The Buccaneers of America" is a remarkable eyewitness account by Alexander Exquemelin, first published in 1678. Exquemelin, thought to be a French surgeon who enlisted with the buccaneers for a time, chronicles the bold feats of these raiders as they disrupted shipping on the high seas and terrorized Caribbean settlements. This account captivated the publics attention and was quickly translated from the original Dutch into Spanish, English, and French, Exquemelin's work remains in print today.

He vividly recounts his personal adventures and Morgan's celebrated raids on Panama, Cartagena, and other ports in this classic work, which is illustrated with engravings depicting noted buccaneers. Exquemelin provides fascinating details of the French presence in Hispaniola (now Haiti and the Dominican Republic), describes the features of that country and its inhabitants, and comments at length on the origin of the buccaneers, vividly recounting their rules of conduct and way of life.
