MCMILLAN, R.: Pirates! (Unabridged)

Which pirate incubated chickens in camel-dung? What would Blackbeard do if you didn’t hand over your jewellery (it wasn’t nice)? Which pirate was called ‘The Exterminator’? Where’s the treasure buried? Why were two women dressed as men on the same pirate ship? Who made the Jolly Roger famous? And who was the greatest pirate ever?

This 2-CD history answers all these questions and many more; it is the ideal introduction to the facts behind the great legends of piracy. Whatever you think you know about pirates, the truth is even more extraordinary!
