Rate this:
Convincing proof that Canadian history is anything but dull, this book recounts the action-filled careers of some of the country's most successful and violent adventurers, licit and illicit.

From Elizabethan privateers seeking fortune off the coasts of Newfoundland to the courtly warriors of Acadia, from the wildly successful letter-of-marque ships of Liverpool, Nova Scotia to the vicious sea fights of the War of 1812, Horwood and Butts reconstruct the lives of the country's finest fighting seamen. Inland, they consider the less reputable careers of the gangs who fought for control of gold and timber in the raw frontier settlements that would one day be Canada.

Featuring plently of fast-paced action Bandits and Privateers brings the excitement of Canadian history to life.
