The Tryal of Capt. William Kidd

Kidd, reviled as a bloodthirsty pirate, was a Scottish-born minister's son who may actually have been innocent of piracy but was certainly hanged for it. Based on official admiralty records, this volume offers an astonishing glimpse into the world of 17th-century piracy, the English judicial system, and the dialogue from the actual trial.
