Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. An entry in the new Turning Points in U.S. History series, this concise introduction briefly traces the history of early European attempts to colonize America and discusses the founding of Jamestown, the extreme difficulties the settlers faced, and the crucial help of the Indians. The literal turning point for the early Jamestown settlers, who, facing starvation, had decided to leave, came when they received news of the first official governor's imminent arrival with new colonists and an ample supply of food. Each double-page spread includes at least one captioned color reproduction of a painting, sketch, print, or document. A concise introduction that will come in especially handy as Jamestown celebrates its quadricentennial this year. Appendixes include a glossary, a time line, short lists of recommended books and Web sites, and a bibliography. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2007 Booklist"
