    Pyle is the best!!!!

    This is the best pirate book on the market!! Howard Pyle was a master storyteller and I'm happy to see his books being brought around again! If you want a great adventure book, read this!! It starts out slow, but stay with it - the best adventures lay right around the page.

    Old fashioned and Enjoyable

    This is a great way to get caught up on your Pirate 101 without having to wade through dry tomes of history that should be exciting but somehow isn't. I also recommend Pyle's Robin Hood stories.
