The actions of these bands of plundering sea rovers reached a peak within the second half of the seventeenth century, when this exceptional eyewitness account was first printed (1678). Alexander Exquemelin, considered a Frenchman who enlisted with the buccaneers for a time, chronicles the daring feats of these raiders as they ravaged delivery and terrorized Caribbean settlements. Exquemelin offers fascinating particulars of the French presence in Hispaniola (now comprising the island nations of Haiti and the Dominican Republic) describes the options of that nation and its inhabitants, and feedback at size on the origin of the buccaneers, vividly recounting their guidelines of conduct and manner of life.
