Description

Pirates and Smugglers is a swashbuckling introduction to the highwaymen and women of the seas -- from the cruel Cilician pirates who terrorized the Mediterranean more than 2,000 years ago to the well-organized and ruthless modern-day buccaneers who target supertankers on the South China Sea -- and the loot they plunder and smuggle.show more

Review quote

Children's Literature All in all, the author has crafted a book that will interest and inform its readership both as a historical work and as a contemporary chronicle. School Library Journal Stunning illustrations and engaging text...Like Milton Meltzer's fine Piracy & Plunder: A Murderous Business (Dutton, 2001), this title offers a true look at the world of piracy and is a bit better illustrated.show more
