    EBOOK Love and Hate in Jamestown John Smith Pocahontas and the Start of a New Nation A readable and interesting look at Jamestown from the perspective of key but also overlooked players The story of the settlement just up the river has been glossed over and sanitized although good history continues to come out of the place as happened just this week I hadn't known how vilified John Smith was or how useless some of the original gentlemen settlers were The careful study of relations between the settlers and natives is the

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

Price ´ 2 Read 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. Picked this up because I liked The Pixar Touch and this one is just as good Price tells the early years of the Jamestown colony with vigor and a sly sense of humorThe surprise of the book is John Smith who is a total action hero He escapes Turkish slavery by beating the slave master to death with a threshing bat turns an Indian ambush into an opportunity to negotiate at gunpoint wins the compassion if not the heart of the princess and keeps the colony alive with a mixture of hard nosed practicality and skillful bluffing Most of the rest of the colony were not on Smith s level a shockingly high percentage of them were useless gentleman searching for gold which is a major reason why people died and died and died Survivor derives a lot of comedy value from the inability of the average American to survive in anything close to a real wilderness what s frightening is how our supposedly hardy forefathers were just as poorly prepared
