Published to coincide with the 400th anniversary of the first American colony, "A Savage Kingdom" presents the bold, even reckless, political adventure driven by a sense of imperial destiny and dogged by official hostility.
From the Publisher:
Drawing on new discoveries in the British archives and other previously untapped sources, a history of the Jamestown colony challenges popular misconceptions to offer insight into the philosophies, motivations, and challenges that influenced New World colonization. Reprint.
Benjamin Woolley's account of the founding of the first successful English settlement in the New World makes history come alive, as he recounts, in a fresh way, the much-told story of John Smith, John Rolfe, Pocahontas, and the many others whose encounters with nature and each other have become an inspirational part of American lore (as well as a top tourist destination). Woolley draws on his prodigious research, as he details the everyday lives of the settlers and the fortunes of the colony, which almost perished. He also places the Jamestown settlement within the larger context of English--and European--world ambitions, making the story an early chapter in the story of globalization.
