New Beginnings: Jamestown and the Virginia Colony 1607-1699 (Crossroads America)
Bargain Book Copy
What makes people give up a life of comfort to travel thousands of miles across the sea to an uncharted land? This is what many have wondered about the settlers who made their way from England to the Virginia Colony in the early 1600¹s. From their arrival in 1607, the settlers of Jamestown faced many difficult challenges, including starvation, conflicts with the Native Americans, deaths from disease, and even unwanted governance. Through it all, the small band of survivors fought to keep their dream of a new home alive - while neighboring Native Americans fought to keep their land from being destroyed. New Beginnings is a story of determination, setbacks, and finally the triumph of the colonists. The endeavors of these brave pioneers brought other settlers to our shores. Jamestown and the rest of the Virginia Colony gave birth to a way of life that shaped our American culture.
