Description
Delighting in the gruesome details of pirate life, this book for readers 7 to 10 describes the exhausting labor, dangerous seas, putrid disease, foul vermin, rancid food, vicious punishments, and other mortal dangers that a typical pirate of the 1700s could expect to face. With vivid cartoon illustrations and plenty of anecdotes from historical records, the book gives us pirate ships at sea and in port, pirates at work and in their off-hours, how pirates treated their prisoners, and the miserable ends that some famous pirates met.

"Pirate fans will delight in this collection of legends and rogue adventures that will send readers off on a voyage of history, tidbits, and grisly lore. Each spread covers a different subject, with colorfully illustrated drawings, text boxes, and a plethora of fascinating, often gruesome, facts. For instance, 'Yum ... Worms Again!' explains how food was hard to preserve and would rot and crawl with maggots. Meanwhile, illustrations show a pirate menu with 'pirate bone soup,' and a text box explains that 'in 1670, Sir Henry Morgan's crew was stranded and had to eat tree bark, leaves, and even their leather satchels.' Topics include 'Chop, Chop...' (an exploration of medical issues that pirates encountered), 'Home, Horrible Home' (a description of the pirate ship), and 'We're Behind You' (how pirates attacked their victims), among others."School Library Journal
