Summary
Jamestown Colony is often held up as a great achievement of colonization. It did help start the United States, after all! However, the truth of Jamestown's beginnings is a less pleasant story of starvation, drought, and frequent quarrels with nearby Powhatans. Readers will learn lots of fascinating, and shocking, information about the settlement to enhance what they learn in the social studies curriculum. Fact boxes full of surprising details will increase interest while historical images help readers picture what life in the first permanent English colony was like.
