This was a good introduction for young students to the Jamestown settlement. It is short and not very-detailed, but does show the hardships the early settlers experienced. It is written like a diary and feels like a very personal read.

This was a lovely little book. We read it in one sitting. It tells the story of Jamestown (albeit condensed into 30 pages) through the use of one settlers journal. We hear about the struggles and friendship with the natives, the starvation, sickness, problems with leadership, etc. We learn about Pocahontas and Captain John Smith. It's decidedly pro-Captain Smith which some persons may take issue with.

The illustrations are fantastic even though they are only black and white.

My kids really enjoyed

Took turns with my oldest 2 children reading this aloud as part of our Beautiful Feet History curriculum. I've read several children's books on the subject and this is by far my favorite. Written as a journal (similar to the Dear America books) but narrated by descendants of the persons journal. The simple sketches were enjoyed.
