Blackbeard by Pat Croce
Climb aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge and sail with the most notorious pirate of all time: Blackbeard! No one has struck terror in the hearts of men more than the notorious Edward Teach, whose big black beard gave him his name. From merchant ships to naval vessels, no target was safe from his bloodthirsty desire to take prizes along the Atlantic Coast and the Caribbean.
In this adventure-filled story, Croce uncovers the true history of this real blood-thirsty villian in our beautifully illustrated edition of Blackbeard.

Editorial Review: Pirates and Privateers, The History of Maritime Piracy, Cindy Vallar, Editor & Reviewer. "Blackbeard is a worthy treasure to add to any young pirate’s collection. It is an excellent introduction to this notorious pirate, especially since it focuses on the truth rather than the fiction. Croce’s knowledge of pirate lore shines through and readers will not be disappointed." Review Copyrighted ©2011 Cindy Vallar
