John Smith: Foothold in the New World details the life and story of Englishman John Smith, the man who founded Jamestown. Thrown overboard, enslaved by the Turks, captured by pirates and rescued by a princess, the story would seem unbelievable were it fiction. John Smith's real passion, however, lay in the exciting New World. In 1607, he sailed to North America with the men who would establish the first lasting British settlement, Jamestown. There he argued rationally for the policies that would enable the fledgling community to survive starvation, disease, and deadly Indian attacks to become the foothold in the New World. This book is part of the Heroes of History series of biographies that are told in an engaging narrative format.
