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!

Review:

George Beahm s new guidebook is a vital source that answers more than 40 questions about piracy, lists pirate festivals and museums all over the country, and tells readers how to act like a proper pirate. It goes beyond the movies, exploring the facts behind the fiction. This full-color source book, unlike the children s books or dry adult tomes preceding it, describes the Golden Age of Caribbean pirates with more than 20 new illustrations by Hugo-Award-winning illustrator Tim Kirk and 100 photos. George Beahm is a pop culture guru whose books cover subjects ranging from Anne Rice to Middle Earth. --PMS, The Independent Book Publishers Association

Caribbean Pirates strives to be "the go-to sourcebook for all things piratical." It provides a history of the "golden age of pirates," to be sure, but it also includes guides to modern pirate festivals and museums, complete with details on how to dress, talk, walk and negotiate like a pirate. --Sun-Sentinal

Readers passionate about the Disney movies and those who can not get enough of pirates and their lore will find this book an entertaining and informative read. --Voya
