Overview

Navigate your way through a fantastic range of subjects with this visually spectacular new series. Every spread is brimming with lively text, amazing photographs and artworks, and weblinks and quotes. Panels throughout offer focused information on specific topics.

 

For action, romance, and adventure, no historical figure can hold a candle to a Pirate. Readers take to the seas and journey back in time to meet some of history's most terrifying characters in this visually-exciting reference. From the earliest records when Cilician pirates kidnapped Julius Caesar, to the 17th-century buccaneer who cut out his victim's heart, and the infamous exploits of the most fearsome pirate-Blackbeard. Along the way, readers will explore a pirate ship, meet some terrifying female pirates and learn about modern piracy. Links and features throughout the book point readers toward contemporary resources to keep the exploration going.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, beware. This book contains the non-varnished, non-Hollywood story of pirates the world over, from the thieves that sailed the Mediterranean in 700 B.C. to those who plundered the South China Sea in the 1840s. Some of the pirate groups described include the Vikings, the Barbary Corsairs, the Tortuga Buccaneers, female pirates, and Chinese pirates, as well as a host of others. A chapter typically consists of a two or four large-page spread. A brief history of each pirate group is provided, and large, colorful illustrations are included. There are numerous sidebars and inserts that add details about the pirates' ships, clothing, weapons, and attack strategies. In many cases, a short fictional story is included to help bring the facts to life. Websites are listed for additional reading about each pirate group. There are also chapters about pirate fiction (the one place where you will find Captain Jack Sparrow, Long John Silver, and Captain Hook), modern day treasure hunters, and a section describing ways in which readers can investigate pirate history on their own. A glossary and an index are included. This book is an excellent resource for readers who need a quick, concise, and unvarnished history of pirates. As might be expected in a book of this sort, there are references (and sometimes illustrations) of beheadings, hangings, and corpses swinging in the wind. Readers who would like more detailed information about pirates should also investigate the beautifully illustrated book, A Thousand Years of Pirates by William Gilkerson. Reviewer: Leona Illig
