What if Jamestown - the first permanent English settlement in North America - had collapsed? Would efforts to establish an English colony have been abandoned? But, Jamestown survived and as the author points out in this book, its early years were central to America's history. As Jamestown began the long process by which different people came together to create America, so did the often contentious and violent path to achieve its and America's destiny.
The book describes unimaginable hardships endured by early colonists. It reveals tragic consequences of attempts to convert the Powhatan's to Christianity. Overall it is a gripping account of the first years of the colony that gave rise to America.
