The end of most of the pirates and a large proportion of the buccaneers was a sudden and violent one, and few of them died in their beds. Many were killed in battle, numbers of them were drowned. Not a few drank themselves to death with strong Jamaica rum, while many of the buccaneers died of malaria and yellow fever contracted in the jungles of Central America, and most of the pirates who survived these perils lived only to be hanged. Philip Gosse's biographical dictionary of The Pirates' Who's Who originally published in 1924. This edition is expanded with an extensive index for easy reference. A true literary gem.
