Pirates & Outlaws of Canada, 1610 to 1932Book - 2003 | 2nd ed.
For over three hundred years, lawlessness kept pace with the march of European civilisation across the land now called Canada. While some made their way with the plough and the trapline, others sought their fortune with a cutlass or a pistol. This book takes the reader to a time when pirates prowled the Atlantic coast and outlaws roamed the western and far northern frontiers. It is the story of their adventures, their crimes, their contributions, and for some, their bloody, untimely deaths. From the notorious pirate Peter Easton, still celebrated in Newfoundland, to the homicidal 'Mad Trapper' of the Yukon, each tale is a thrilling and suspenseful adventure. 'Pirates & Outlaws' -- the first popular history of piracy and brigandry on Canada's soil and in her waters -- gives a unique perspective on the dark side of Canadian history.
