Soixante portraits de pirates, as de la gâchette, aventuriers des sables, hors-la-loi ou bandits au grand coeur, qui se sont révoltés contre toutes formes d'injustices : Mandrin, Olivier Misson, Calamity Jane, Marius Jacob... ©Electre 2024

These rebels rose up against injustice and were prepared to die for their beliefs; they yearned for great open spaces. From the monopoly of the maritime powers to the advent of industrialism, they defied everything, and in doing so they signed their own death warrants. From train robbers Jesse James and Bruce Reynolds, to Lawrence of Arabia and IRA-activist Bobby Sands, to duos like Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - their armed exploits are well known, but their true causes have often gone unheard. Unable to tolerate arbitrary justice, brazen profiteering, or the oppression of the poor, these exceptional men and women rebelled and became feared outlaws. First seen as nothing but dreaded bandits, today they provoke the rapt fascination of all who secretly harbor a thirst for rebellion and wild adventure.
