Description
Pirates have captivated our imaginations for generations, and the popularity of the recent Pirates of the Caribbean films has planted them even more firmly in our minds. But what were pirates really like? Author Robert Ritchie guides us on a tour of piracy from ancient times through the present, and dispels the false image of pirates created by adventure stories and Hollywood. The truth is, unbelievably, even more intriguing than the fiction. Pirates were usually men (and sometimes women!) who turned to piracy in desperationùto avoid starvation or to save their own lives. They were from countries across the globe, from every social class, and of every race. Their average age was only twenty seven. In this lavishly illustrated book, you will see piratesÆ brutal lives and bloody deaths, get a peek at their ships and the lives of their crews, and meet some of historyÆs most famous and infamous buccaneers. YouÆll finally learn the truth about the way they lived and died. Full of color and history and danger, this book is as fun as a Johnny Depp movie but its all true!
