ID: 7c915624a16420f24d86fd9bce5d4fa5

Jamestown and the Birth of the American Dream Timed for the 400th anniversary of Jamestown- a fresh look at its most important leader Captain John Smith helped found Jamestown in 1607 and was the colony' s first leading figure. Drawing on primary sources and new archeological findings, this spirited history brings to life Smith' s years at Jamestown, demythologizing his relationship with Pocahontas and examining how his hard-nosed leadership helped the colony survive and thrive in its early years. The book also describes Smith' s swashbuckling earlier adventures- he sailed with a pirate ship in the Mediterranean, fought against the Turkish invaders of Eastern Europe, was sold into slavery and escaped- as well as his later expedition to map the coast of New England. Thomas Hoobler and Dorothy Hoobler (New York, NY) are the authors of the ten-volume American Family Album series, which was acclaimed by the New York Times and Newsday.
