Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-7This concise but quite complete book covers the lucrative action of pirates; their adherence to democratic principles; their routines and lives at sea; illness, injury, and discipline; as well as the differences between pirates, privateers, and buccaneers. Fascinating information emerges, such as the fact that their strict list of rules became our modern "Roberts' Rules of Order." Colorful illustrations enliven every page and help to organize the text into self-contained units within a larger context. The "Who's Who" at the end gives a brief overview of some famous pirates. This title is useful for reports as well as for general reading. A multidimensional view of this group of very colorful figures.Edith Ching, Parrott Library, St. Albans School, Mt.
