Through reading The Pirate Hunter The True Story of Captain Kidd by Richard Zacks. I discovered Kidd was never actually a Pirate. But a privateer commissioned by some of the most powerful British families in the colonies. The book is an amazing tale of historical adventure with great story telling by Richard Zacks I can't recommend the book enough.
This is my attempt to capture Kidd's character the high-tempered Scotsman wrongly executed for privacy.
