Draw A Pirate: Another great blog about pirates
Draw A Pirate is a fantastic blog about pirates (and there aren't many). Some of the drawings appear to be penned by the blog's owner, while others are submitted or gathered from elsewhere. Its not just drawings, there are youtube videos and pirate facts sprinkled in as well. Their logo (a newspaper hat with a skull and crossbones) is so clever it can smartly be filed under "I wish I'd thought of that!"

"The Fate Of A Treasure Town" available on Google Books
Howard Pyle's short story The Fate Of A Treasure Town is now available for viewing and download at Google Books. The story and a number others are part of a public domain book called Adventures Of Pirates and Sea Rovers. Unfortunately, I don't think this book has the illustrations set up the same way they appeared when the story was originally published in Harpers Monthly Magazine. Follow this link to the book:
