Love And Hate In Jamestown from the Author: David A. Price. A New York Times Notable Book and aSan Jose Mercury News Top 20 Nonfiction Book of 2003In 1606, approximately 105 British colonists sailed to America, seeking gold and a trade route to the Pacific. Instead, they found disease, hunger, and hostile natives. Ill prepared for such hardship, the men responded with incompetence and infighting; only the leadership of Captain John Smith averted doom for the first permanent English settlement in the New World.The Jamestown colony is one of the great survival stories of American history, and this book brings it fully to life for the first time. Drawing on extensive original documents, David A. Price paints intimate portraits of the major figures from the formidable monarch Chief Powhatan, to the resourceful but unpopular leader John Smith, to the spirited Pocahontas, who twice saved Smith’s life. He also gives a rare balanced view of relations between the settlers and the natives and debunks popular myths about the colony. This is a superb work of history, reminding us of the horrors and heroism that marked the dawning of our nation. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Zur Geschichte Der Fr Hen Besiedlung Nordamerikas from the Author: Ernst Gusenbauer. Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1998 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Amerika, Note: 2,0, FernUniversit√§t Hagen (Historisches Institut ), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die vorliegende Arbeit besch√§ftigt sich mit den Anf√§ngen der von Europa ausgehenden dauerhaften Siedlungst√§tigkeit in Nordamerika. Anhand zweier verschiedener Regionen, n√§mlich der Ansiedlung von Jamestown in Virginia und New-Plymouth in Massachusetts, soll der Frage nachgegangen werden, ob und in welchem Ma√üe Gemeinsamkeiten aber auch grundlegende Unterschiede in der fr√ľhen Besiedlung festzustellen sind. Die Untersuchung hat sich als Schwerpunkt, dies ist zugleich auch der inhaltliche und zeitliche Beschr√§nkungsrahmen, die ersten Jahre der Siedlungsgr√ľndung gesetzt. Gerade das erfolgreiche Bew√§ltigen der harten Anfangszeit konnte als sicheres Anzeichen f√ľr die Wahrscheinlichkeit des √úberlebens und Weiterbestehens einer Siedlerkolonie gelten.

One of the Jamestown settlers may have been a cannibal? Christopher Newport, a captain of one of the ships, only had one arm? When Haley's Comet crossed the sky before the journey overseas began it was considered bad luck? John Smith became an explosives expert by reading books? ...In the first years at Jamestown, colonists faced a one in seven chance of staying alive! ...The colonists saved their ear wax for the tailors to use to thread their needles? ...The colonists mostly buried folks naked so they could reuse the dead's clothing?

Jamestown from the Author: Tim McNeese. In 1607, American Indians, hidden along the banks of a Virginia river, watched as three boats filled with bearded strangers sailed upstream. For more than a century, the Spanish had been busy establishing an empire in the New World, far to the south. Meanwhile, other Europeans began launching their own colonial efforts in lands that for many centuries had been home to tens of thousands of Native Americans. These newly arrived strangers riding upstream were Englishmen, ready to take great risks in the name of their king as they reached the unknown shores of what is today Chesapeake Bay. They would settle on an island in a river they named for their king - James. Just in time to celebrate the 400th anniversary of its settlement, Jamestown treats students to a fully illustrated and highly readable history of the first permanent English colony in North America.
