Three hundred years ago, Captain Kidd was hanged for piracy, but he before died he claimed to have hidden a vast fortune in the Indies. In the years since, maps to the fabled island have appeared and there have been many attempts to recover that treasure. This book examines Kidd's life against the backdrop of piracy in the Indian Ocean and concludes that there is much to justify his claim, and even more to his story -- a life of piracy thrust upon him by noble backers, men who broke their own laws and then let him die for their crimes.
