Description
More lives, more big heads. In the wake of Lives of the Musicians, Lives of the Artists, and Lives of the Writers, Kathleen Krull profiles 19 notorious pirates here for readers 9 and up, illustrated with Kathryn Hewitt's delightful caricatures. Describing the lives and personalities of figures like Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Lady Mary Killigrew, the Barbarossa Brothers, Madame Cheng, Francis Drake, and Long John Silver (not a real pirate, the author admits, but an icon nonetheless), Krull wonders what drove them to sail the high seas. What were their bad habits, favorite foods, and odd quirks? And did they actually say "Yar!" and "Yo-ho-ho?"
