Maine has never been regarded as a pirate haven, but only because witnesses were few and far between. With a rugged coast and over four thousand offshore islands, Maine’s dark waters attracted sea raiders like Dixie Bull from the 1600s through colonial times. Pirate treasure may still await discovery in Phippsburg and Machias, and pirate deceit could have prompted a massacre in ancient Fort Loyall. The infamous Captain Kidd may have prowled the waters off Deer Isle, while further down the coast a woman and a bloodthirsty band of cutthroats lured ships to disaster at Isles of Shoals. Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Latimer separates historical fact from fiction and leads readers on an adventure through the state’s foggy and treacherous past. Cover by Maine artist, Glenn Chadbourne, whose talents are often used by Stephen King.
A podcast with the author was done in April with the publisher. You can listen to it here.
