Laura Sook Duncombe is the author of "Pirate Women: The Princesses, Prostitutes, and Privateers Who Ruled The Seven Seas". It's a fantastic book about female pirates throughout history, both in fact and fiction.
I got a ton of new info in my brain from this book and from my talk with Laura and I know you'll dig it too.
Viking pirate ladies? Check. Some Anne Bonny and Mary Read talk? Check. Cheng I Sao? Check. And tons more you had no idea ever existed.
Cosmopolitan Magazine rated 'Pirate Women' as the #1 book to read in 2017. And you may have heard Laura on This American Life (along with Mark Hanna) in their recent pirate episode.
