Anne Bonny and Mary Read

Women pirates were more common than we might think. This week’s reading in Buccaneers and Pirates of Our Coasts focuses on two of the most famous – Anne Bonny and Mary Read. You can read more about the lives of these two daring pirates in an earlier post Oh My! Lady Pirates.
