CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH, THE LAD FROM LINCOLNSHIRE

John Smith of Lincolnshire, England, and Virginia, the New World, lived a fascinating, soldier of fortune existence. Ruth Holberg has sketched the glamorous incredible tale of his many daring adventures on the continent -- fighting Turks, fleeing slavery, daring much, experiencing a dangerous existence in which Jamestown, Virginia and Pocahontas were late incidents. This is unusual historical material which schools, libraries and young boys will find interesting, for the dramatic story includes glimpses of English and continental life in the 16th and early 17th centuries.
