A Pirate’s Life for She: Swashbuckling Women Through the Ages by Laura Sook Duncombe

A Pirate’s Life for She is a collection of short biographies on 16 female pirates throughout the ages and how they came to sail on or in command of their ships. History often overlooks women, especially female pirates, but Duncombe does these women justice in telling their stories and how they rose to power. This was a quick and read that I enjoyed.
