“Thoroughly researched and enthrallingly written, Duncombe shows love and mastery of the subject in equal measure.” —Jason Porath, author of Rejected Princesses: Tales of History’s Boldest Heroines, Hellions, and Heretics


“A satisfying and necessary addition to the piratical pop culture canon.” —Bitch


“Duncombe reveals dozens of fascinating tales, starting with the earliest known female pirate—Queen Artemisia I of Halicarnassus in the 5th century BC.” —New York Post


“Duncombe’s well-researched account will appeal to history and women’s studies aficionados, lovers of myth and lore, and all interested in viewing the past through a new lens.” —Booklist


“A deftly written and impressively organized and presented volume.” —Midwest Book Review
