So many books (you know the rest)
Sir Francis Drake
by Harry Kelsey
Published in 2000 (I finished it on October 20, 2002)
I only picked up the book for a school report, but was glad I did. The book covers the life of one great pirate, one who had his pirating backed by England itself. The book reads mostly as a biography though, so don’t expect 400 pages of swashbuckling adventures.
