Pirate Women: The Princesses, Prostitutes, and Privateers Who Ruled the Seven Seas
Author Laura Sook Duncombe also looks beyond the stories to the storytellers and mythmakers. What biases and agendas motivated them? What did they leave out? Pirate Women explores why and how these stories are told and passed down, and how history changes depending on who is recording it. It's the most comprehensive overview of women pirates in one volume and chock-full of swashbuckling adventures that pull these unique women from the shadows into the spotlight that they deserve.
Thoroughly researched and enthrallingly written, Duncombe shows love and mastery of the subject in equal measure.
