Summary
When Daniel Collins and the crew of the Betsey set sail for Cuba in 1824, they have no idea of the horrors that lie ahead. This is just one of the stories in a collection of five true tales about pirates and shipwrecks that introduces readers to the perils of the high seas. Pirates and Shipwrecks: True Stories is the first book in the Mystery & Mayhem series for 9–12 year olds, which features true tales that whet kids appetites for history by engaging them in genres with proven track records—mystery and adventure. History is made of near misses, unexplained disappearances, unsolved mysteries, and bizarre events that are almost too weird to be true—almost! The Mystery & Mayhem series delves into the past to provide kids with a jumping-off point into a lifelong habit of appreciating history. Each of the true tales in Pirates and Shipwrecks , including stories about pirate Barbarossa and adventurer John Franklin, is paired with interesting facts about the setting, industry, and time period. A glossary and index provide the opportunity to use essential academic tools. These nonfiction narratives use clear, concise language with compelling plots, drawing in both avid and reluctant readers

Summary
The crew of the Betsey didn't realize that not all of them would make it home to Maine from Cuba... What happened to the 1845 Expedition to the Arctic? Did Captain Franklin and his men perish in the cold, or did they resort to horrible measures to stay alive?... Mary Read didn't let being a woman keep her from becoming one of the most feared crew members aboard a pirate ship... Two ships wreck on the same small island at the same time. Can the crews keep from being eaten by the Wild Men?... He was shorter than most men and was missing an arm, but that didn't prevent Barbarossa from being the most feared pirate in the Mediterranean
