Famous Pirate Stories

In 1904, J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan was performed on stage in London. It has enchanted children ever since. It is part fairy tale and part adventure story, presenting its pirates as foolish and incompetent caricatures. In children's literature of the 1800's and early 1900's, pirates were popular subject matter. A new breed of hero was created: the smart, young, Anglo-Saxon Protestant who does battle with pirates.


Nancy Kington, daughter of a rich merchant, suddenly orphaned when her father dies, is sent to live on her family's plantation in Jamaica. Disgusted by the treatment of the slaves and her brother's willingness to marry her off, she and one of the slaves, Minerva, run away and join a band of pirates. For both girls the pirate life is their only chance for freedom in a society where both are treated like property, rather than individuals.
