these old-time Pirates, any more than there could be a second Remington to paint the now extinct Indians
and gun-fighters of the Great West."

author-artist's classic pirate stories that had been scattered through many magazines and books. Well
researched and with richly drawn characters, Pyle's work will appeal to students of history and adventure
