Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
The high seas. Sparkling gold. Bold adventure. These are the aspects of pirate life that trigger the imagination. Now, children can find out more about the thieving seafarers of old in a book packed with full-color photographs, detailed illustrations, fold-out flaps, maps, and diagrams. Learn about the long history of pirating, dating from almost a thousand years B.C. to today. Then, focus on the period of swashbucklers that have become the stereotypical pirates—those of the 1600s and 1700s. Find out about the hard life of those on a pirate ship and the weapons of force they used. Go inside a pirate ship, examining it from bow to stern, above and below deck. Read about the deceptive and intimidating tactics used by many buccaneers, as well as the dismal, violent ends faced by many. Readers whose appetites for all things pirate have been whet by the recent upsurge of buccaneer-themed movies, TV shows, and advertisements are sure to find fodder for their creative play in the pages of this intriguing book. From the "Inside Access" series.
