The Ballad of the Pirate Queens

by

The Ballad of the Pirate Queens Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two sailors were keeping watch alone when the governor's men stormed aboard the Vanity. Those two--the legend-inspiring pirate queens Anne Bonney and Mary Reade--fought bravely but called in vain for their shipmates, who sported and drank below deck. Jane Yolen's stirring ballad immortalizes these two daring women and offers readers an intriguing look at life on the high seas.

Synopsis:

Master storyteller Jane Yolen celebrates the true story of Anne Bonney and Mary Reade, the most famous female pirates in history. In 1720 everyone in Port Maria Bay had heard of the Vanity's pirating ways, but no one knew there were two brave women among the elusive pirate ship's crew. Dramatic, full-color paintings bring their story to life.
