Description from the amazon:
Two sailors were keeping watch alone when the governor's men stormed aboard the Vanity. Those two--the legend-inspiring pirate queens Anne Bonney and Mary Reade--fought bravely but called in vain for their shipmates, who sported and drank below deck. Jane Yolen's stirring ballad immortalizes these two daring women and offers readers an intriguing look at life on the high seas.
The illustrations are beautiful and fit perfectly with this lyrical tale of two pirate queens.
Makes me want to read more about them and women pirates in general.
