Summary
"You know all about pirates. They were big guys with fancy hats, silk jackets, peg legs, and parrots cursing on their shoulders. They sailed big ships with brass guns and made lubbers walk the plank ... right? Wrong. ..." Pirates and piracy, buried treasure, and life on the high seas are brought to life in this colorful, appealing book. Jan Adkin's talent for combining words, illustration, and design is uniquely well-suited to the world of Pirates: ships and seafaring, maps, weapons, larger than life characters and larger than life stories are vividly presented in Jan's signature, design-driven style. This large format, full color picture book presents pirate history and pirate lore, pirate ships and equipment, and pirate life
Summary
Describes what piracy was like, concentrating on the period of 1500 to 1750, with a timeline extending from 78 BC to the present day
