    Throughout the 16th century, English privateers raided - and traded with - the Caribbean outposts of the Spanish Empire. Led by larger- than-life West Countrymen such as Hawkyns, Drake and Ralegh, they were hailed by the crown when they succeeded, and disowned when they failed. This gripping history tells their story from the sailors' perspective. Packed with storms, broken masts and battles at sea, it traces the perilous voyages that paved the way for the establishment of English colonies in North America.
