Summary

Pirates! Scoundrels Who Shook the World

Exclusively on Audible, hilarious history for ages eight and up.

Hoist the mizzenmast and batten down those bloody hatches: Pirates! Scoundrels Who Shook the World tells the hilarious-but-true adventures of history’s most amazing pirates.

Learn about Stede Bonnet, the gentleman pirate, who left a life of luxury to become one of the most clueless pirates ever; Anne Bonney and Mary Read, two “openly female women” whose exploits turned them into media sensations; Jean and Pierre Lafitte, the Pirate Kings of New Orleans, who helped America win The War of 1812, and Ching Shih, the Chinese woman who rose from utter poverty to become the greatest pirate in history.

Pirates! has it all: swordfights, cannon blasts, parrot poop, daring acts of idiocy, bumbling British officers, and of course, plenty of booty. So buckle your swashes and swish your swords, Pirates! Scoundrels Who Shook the World is setting sail to the land of hilarity.

foot

there was this time that I bought a table for ten dollars and it lasted for two years which is surprising because I bought it for 10 dollars. it only broke when I was eating putty and threw the container at a cat which meowed and that attracted a dog which barked and frightened the garbage man who reversed into the table . have you ever had that weird feeling on your tongue after eating a whole bad of sour skittles it lasts for very long . one time it lasted for three days and I still have weak teeth after that so don't eat a whole bag of skittles. There was this time when I stubbed my toe on a 5 kg weight as you can imagine it hurt a lot . I once told a minecraft villager that I hope he gets drop kicked by a 4 year old built like a bus , he never forgave me which is sad 😭. And now for the list of every emoji to make people pay attention to this review. 😀😁😂🤣😃😄😅😆😉😊😋😎😍😘🥰😗😙😚☺🙂🤗🤩🤔🤨😐😑😶🙄😏😣😥😮🤐😯😪😫😴😌😛😜😝🤤😒😓😔😕🙃🤑😲☹🙁😖😞😟😤😢😭😦😧😨😩🤯😬😰😱🥵🥶😳🤪😵😡😠🤬😷🤒🤕🤢🤮🤧😇🤠🥳🥴🥺🤥🤫🤭🧐🤓☻😈👿🤡👹👺💀☠👻👽👾🤖💩😺😸😹😻😼😽🙀😿😾 sorry can't think of anything else to say so byeèeeeeeeee.

Plundering pirates and more!

After I listened to the rivals first book, I found this book and boy is it good! This is so interesting and the way some parts are presented is so good! I found myself listening to it several times and loving it more and more I listened to it. Scott Mcormick put effort in and does it show!

Fascinating!

I have loved all of Scott McCormick’s books on Audible. They’re fascinating; much better than the history lessons I used to have in school.
