This installment in the acclaimed LIVES OF series profiles the swashbuckling adventures of history's most famous pirates—and dispels a few rumors along the way.
The content is the same. Only the format is different, giving this acclaimed series a look that will appeal to kids as much as it does to teachers and librarians. Every kid knows that pirates talk funny, swing a big sword, and seek buried treasure—don’t they? What do we really know about Blackbeard, Madame Cheng, Sir Francis Drake, and other men and women of pirate history? What drove them to sail the high seas? What were their bad habits, favorite foods, and silly quirks? And did they actually talk like that? Lives of the Pirates spans the globe with profiles of the nineteen most notorious pirates in history.
