Booty PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Booty free pdf A treasure trove of high adventure and bad behaviour, Booty tells the all-true tales of real women pirates who prowled the seas from the 9th to the 20th centuries in search of easy prey and easy profit. Raiding ships, boozing, brawling, and looting, they struck terror in the hearts of men from the Mediterranean to the South China Sea to the rivers of New York. Meet Rachel Wall, who traded her devout religious upbringing for lewd and wicked company- Cheng I Sao, who led a fleet of 2,000 ships and made her men drink cocktails of wine and gunpowder- Mary Read, who killed one pirate for the love of another- and Sadie the Goat, who headbutted her victims before fleecing them of cash. Their exploits and those of many more swashbuckling women fill these pages, along with salty illustrations and an informative look at the finer points of pirate life (grog, flogging, fashion, and more). Arrrrr.
