Adventure into the Unknown

Meet the first English settlers in America. Thirteen years before the Pilgrims, a group of English adventurers established a settlement in the wilds of Virginia. Unfriendly Indians were only one of their worries as this poorly-equipped group of fortune seekers ventured into a land of complete mystery.

Hunger, disease, and few skills kept the number of English settlers down and forced them to remain along the shores of the James River, until a brave leader emerged.

John Smith was a very determined man whose success in trading with the native population kept the group alive until help arrived from England.

Jamestown: The Perilous Adventure--newly updated by Jamestown Scholars--traces the settlers' journeys through feverish swamps and on dangerous expeditions, and it covers their battles with the Indians who were determined to keep these unwanted invaders out of their lands.

About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.

Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.

Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
This Landmark book is a great way to learn about the Pilgrims and the English Adventurers who settled in Virginia.  You will learn about their trials and victories. You will learn the historical account of Pocahontas.  This is a great historical book to teach your children about the founding of our country in a fun interesting way.
