About this title

Synopsis:

Ahoy, mateys! Readers look behind the legends to trace the profitable but deadly routes pirates have traveled--from the time humans first set sail more than 3,000 years ago to the marauding pirates in 19th century Asia and beyond. Full color.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-5?A serviceably written chronology of piracy. Pirotta begins by discussing the Phoenicians, who are credited with being the first pirates dating from as early as 2000 B.C. Subsequent chapters cover corsairs, buccaneers, privateers, and pirates of the East in the order in which they appeared on the historical horizon. The text is augmented by ample full-color art reproductions and photos as well as by maps reviewing the pirates' respective territories. Numerous insets include fairly lengthy texts along with pictures relevant to the main body of the text. The book compares favorably to other research-oriented titles on the subject such as Karen McWilliams's Pirates (Watts, 1989) because it draws attention to the existence of non-European Muslim and Asian pirates. For lighter browsing material, Margarette Lincoln's The Pirate's Handbook (Cobblehill, 1995) pairs factual information with creative crafts and projects. Pirates and Treasure is a solid addition.?Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA
