KIRKUS REVIEW

A full and fascinating account of the Jamestown colony by the author of How the Pilgrims Came to Plymouth and other books about great moments in history. Although less dramatic in construction than Marie Lawson's P and Captain John Smith (see report P. 423), this account enhances the excitement of the story of the Jamestown colonists by well-developed sequence and a mass of delightful detail not always covered -- a full account of the ""coronation"" of Powhatan, and the wily chief's blunt statement to the English, the reunion of Pocahontas and Captain John Smith in England and the kidnapping of the young Indian girl by Samuel Argall. The narrative covers the years from 1607, when three ships led by Captain Gosnold sighted the land of Virginia, to the first representative assembly in the church in Jamestown in 1619.
