9780152059088: Lives of the Pirates: Swashbucklers, Scoundrels (Neighbors Beware!)

Every kid knows that pirates talk funny, swing a big sword, and seek buried treasure don t they? What do we really know about Blackbeard, Madame Cheng, Sir Francis Drake, and other men and women of pirate history? What drove them to sail the high seas? What were their bad habits, favorite foods, and silly quirks? And did they actually talk like that?

A lively style, lots of surprises, and solid research have made the Lives of . . . series of collective biographies popular with both kids and adults. Now the series returns, spanning the globe with profiles of the nineteen most notorious pirates in history."
