Publisher Comments:

Is a pirate's life for you? Here's how to live the life of a Caribbean pirate!

Think you know everything there is to know about pirates, do you? Well me bucko, you've got a lot to learn, and here's where you can drink your fill!

I'm "Scurvy Dog" George Beahm and, along with "Long John" Tim Kirk (a former Disney artist), we're here to take you on a pirate cruise to the Caribbean, where you can shoot, scoot, and loot to your plundering heart's content. We'll show you how to find your sea legs and get you ship-shape so you can sail the high seas and pillage the New World with the most ferocious cutthroats that ever hoisted the Jolly Roger! Well, "arrr" you ready?

With artwork commissioned especially for this book from artist Tim Kirk, and illustrated with 145 full-color photos, this book tells you everything you'd want to know about Caribbean pirates! How to talk, dress, and live like a pirate on cruises and at pirate festivals. Where to find the best pirate museums in the world. A quiz to test your pirate knowledge. And, best of all, a no-holds-barred look at pirate history through the lens of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean. Were pirates really hung? Who was Davy Jones? Were there cannibals in the Caribbean? Find out in this fun and fact-filled book!

Synopsis:

Pirates--the word that once struck fear in the hearts of sailors has now struck gold for Disney through its Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride and movie franchise. Pop culture chronicler Beahm, in association with "Pirates Magazine," traces the rise of the pirate craze and separates pirate fact from fiction. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

Pirates The word that used to strike fear in the hearts of sailors has now struck gold for Disney through its Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise and theme park ride. Pirates have overrun pop culture in everything from children's toys to the recent ?Talk like a pirate? day phenomenon. Pop culture chronicler George Beahm, in association with the newly launched Pirates Magazine, traces the rise of the pirate craze and separates pirate fact from fiction. Bridging the gap between children's books and academic historical texts, Buccaneers and Pirates of the Caribbean features a reader-friendly, sound-bite format covering all aspects of pirate life as well as the folklore surrounding the notorious mariners. George Beahm has written more than twenty books on pop culture, including Passport to Narnia (Hampton Roads, 2005, ISBN 1-57174-465-7) and Fact, Fiction, and Folklore in Harry Potter's World (Hampton Roads, 2005, ISBN 1-57174-440-1).
