The Golden Age of Pirates


The Golden Age of Pirates
Click to enlarge

The Golden Age of Pirates is a title in the Interactive History Adventure series from Capstone. This book allows kids to learn what life in the age of pirates was like - from being impressed into navy service to being marooned on a sandbar, life was not always as glorious as the movies portray it. Choose one of three "paths" to learn about life on the high seas. Join the Royal Navy and serve under a brutal captain, as many young boys did. Will you be driven to mutiny and piracy by the captain's cruelty? Another path takes you into the crew of a Spanish treasure ship - and a run-in with the (in)famous English Privateer, Captain Morgan. Will you join his crew, or die fighting for your cargo? The third path puts you on a pirate ship. Will you sail with Blackbeard, Black Bart, or Stede Bonnet? In each path, make real-life choices and learn about the maritime culture of the early 1800s. Note: the era of pirates was a violent one, and this book realistically portrays the dangers, hardships, and characters of the era. Several of the storylines include descriptions of the tortures and "punishments" inflicted for being on the wrong side in a battle. In many of the stories, the character dies or is murdered. Please use discretion when giving this book to younger readers, but with parental guidance, these short stories (5-15 pages, depending on the choices you make) can be great educational material for readers with any attention span. The materials for further research and discussion at the end of each book in this series make integrating these books into curriculum or unit studies easy and fun. These books are especially great for kids in 3-7th grades, although older kids have been known to enjoy them too. The reading level on these books is 3-4th grade.
