The "Terrific Register" thrilled its readers with tales of Turkish princes and wicked thieves, black-hearted murderers, wicked massacres, and the boldest criminals ever to menace the traveler by land or sea. This selection contains the most graphic tales of highway thefts and dark deeds on the high seas. Lovers of high adventure will find the life of Blackbeard and the adventures of Henry Morgan--Welsh privateer and one of the most dangerous men ever to sail the Spanish Main. Countless tales of murder and plunder culminate in the strange story of the resurrected highwayman, brought back from the dead after his execution--forcing the authorities to hang him for the second time.
