Throughout the ages, women from all classes and walks of life turned to pirating out of necessity, desperation, or greed. Meet Artemisia, the admiral-queen of Persia in 500 BC; Grania O'Malley, the Irish"pirate queen"who challenged Queen Elizabeth I's ships; Madame Ching, who sailed the South China Sea in the early 1800's; and ten other female pirates on their ships, in battle, and in disguise. Acclaimed author Jane Yolen examines the contradictions of these bold women's lives and times.
