Hljóðbók

The most powerful pirate in history was a woman who was born into poverty in Guangzhou, China, in the late eighteenth century. When pirates attacked Zheng Yi Sao’s town and the captain took a liking to her, she saw a way out. She agreed to marry him only if she got an equal share of his business. When her husband died, she took command of the fleet. On land and sea, Zheng Yi Sao’s power rivaled that of the emperor himself. Over the next decade, the pirate queen built a fleet of more than 1,800 ships and 70,000 men. Time and again, her ships triumphed over the emperor’s ships. When she was ready to retire, the pirate queen surrendered — on her own terms, of course. Zheng Yi Sao’s story is told in lyrical prose by award-winning author Helaine Becker. Liz Wong’s colorful, engaging illustrations capture the courage and grit of this remarkable woman. An author’s note provides historical context and outlines the challenges of researching a figure about whom little is known.

Henrik Karlsson

"Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

Birgitta Johansson

"Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

Birgitta Lindh

"Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
