Dive into the world of piracy on the high seas in the 17th century with historian Dr. Daphne Geanacopoulos.

She shares the never-before-told story of Sarah Kidd, the wife of the infamous pirate, Captain Kidd.

Were pirates gentlemen or bandits in the 17th century? It’s a story of culture, of the power of the wives at home and the science of piracy centuries ago. Her book is, "The Pirate's Wife: The Remarkable True Story of Sarah Kidd."
