Lives of the Pirates
Swashbucklers, Scoundrels (neighbors Beware!)Downloadable Audiobook - 2010
If you think Pirates are just swashbuckling, sword-swinging fantasy characters with a colorful vocabulary; think again! Some were true criminals, some were simply misunderstood, and all contributed to the image of pirates that remains fascinating to us to this day. What does history tell us about Blackbeard, Madame Cheng, Sir Francis Drake, and other real pirates? What made these pirates go to sea? Kathleen Krull tells true stories, debunks myths, and acknowledges some lingering mysteries.
