I have read a half dozen previous books on the subject of John Smith and the Jamestown settlement and four times that many about colonial Virginia generally but this small volume describes details of the story than all the rest put together The compelling narrative is supported by a most impressive list of references to seemingly every original writing from the men who were there Writings by John Smith and about John Smith by his peers as well as original manuscripts from most all of the colony s early leaders their scribes and their sponsors in England support the author s personal conjecture and conclusions This book may be the best we will ever have about what really happened in the first permanent settlement on the shores of the James River by people who would begin the experiment of creating a new kind of nation over the subseuent 200 years I also appreciate the summary of Captain Smith s life after his departure from Virginia He belongs in the pantheon of American heroes and both he and the Jamestown settlement story deserve much greater emphasis in school history booksFlaws of this volume if there are any might include the title which seems sensational than descriptive There is certainly kindness mixed with cruelty appreciation of the landscape and manifold efforts to peacefully prosper mixed with arrogance avarice laziness and ignorance But for the most part there was little time in Jamestown for much love and hatred seems too strong a term even when fear and real transgressions incited the very human reactions of vengeance I also personally dislike the author s assertions about what he or she or they would have said or done about some described occasion for which there is no apparent written record of proof However I give him A credit for research into social practices of the time in England and maybe another reader would enjoy the digressions In any case these are very minor flaws compared to the important story told here by a skilled writer who clearly sought the truest history possible by spending what must have been a million hours to read the original and sometimes conflicting documents And then he made it all beautifully readable in fewer than 300 pages for the rest of us

Love and Hate in Jamestown John Smith Pocahontas and the Start of a New Nation characters ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB David A. Price Ö 7 download read Love and Hate in Jamestown John Smith Pocahontas and the Start of a New Nation Ion He paints indelible portraits of Chief Powhatan the aged monarch who came close to ending the colony's existence and Captain John Smith the former mercenary and slave whose disdain for class distinctions infuriated many around him even as his resourcefulness made him essential to the colony's success Love and Hate in Jamestown is a superb work of popular history reminding us of the horrors and heroism that marked the dawning of our natio. Apart from being the first Native American to be converted to Christianity in English America Pocahontas this book seems to imply was also a proto feminist and celebrity As a young girl and the Powhatan Chief s favourite daughter she saved John Smith s life by interceding with her father when he was captured during one of his many expeditions to trade for the founding colony Jamestown Unlike other women from her tribe she chose her destiny and went sometimes against her own people if it meant keeping her conscience clear This meant putting her own life at risk by saving Smith s life a second time this book implies she had a fascination with him perhaps because he epitomised the type of self made man Powhatan women were raised to find attractive as well as warning Jamestown of a planned attack She eventually embraced the English way marrying a colonist then traveling to the Old World to be paraded in fashionable salons like a distinguished princessThis award winning book is a great introduction to the roots of America s birth and the reasons why the initial peace between colonisers and natives couldn t last It shows how the American ideal of a man creating his own destiny with disregard to elites was cemented before the founding fathers but also how miscommunication and greed has poisoned this spiritmyth from the start and laid down the foundations for most of the country s current problems I found the echoes with today s War on Terror particularly interesting when Jamestown and the surrounding plantations were massacred by the Natives the shock in Britain and the retaliation afterwards was very much like 911 It s a terrible irony that the first major act of terror in America was perpetrated by the Natives against people they rightly perceived as invaders of their lands
