What makes people give up their 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 1600s. From their arrival in 1607, the settlers of Jamestown faced many difficult challenges including starvation, Indian aggression, and deaths by disease, or even unwanted governance. Through it all, the small band of survivors fought to keep their dream alive and a band of Native Americans fought to keep their home from being destroyed. New Beginnings is a story of determination, defeat, and finally the triumph of the settlers. 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 forever. Provides an account of the first permanent English settlement in North America, from the harrowing journey across the Atlantic to attacks from Native Americans, the spread of diseases, and starvation. Like the others in the series, New Beginnings is illustrated with period photographs, paintings, and drawings. Also included are a glossary and an index.
