may have seen movies and heard stories about dancing, laughing, singing,
joking pirates, bold heroes sailing the seven seas. Well, that wasn't
who pirates really were. And it wasn't who pirates are today. Pirates

beautiful full page paintings. It will dispell the pirate myths and
show pirates for whom they were and for whom they are: brutal, evil,
thieves with no compassion.
