Overview

Twelve-year-old Samuel Collier is a lowly commoner on the streets of London. So when he becomes the page of Captain John Smith and boards the Susan Constant, bound for the New World, he can’t believe his good fortune. He’s heard that gold washes ashore with every tide. But beginning with the stormy journey and his first contact with the native people, he realizes that the New World is nothing like he imagined. The lush Virginia shore where they establish the colony of James Town is both beautiful and forbidding, and it’s hard to know who’s a friend or foe. As he learns the language of the Algonquian Indians and observes Captain Smith’s wise diplomacy, Samuel begins to see that he can be whomever he wants to be in this new land.

    A reviewer

    The book 'Blood On The River' is an enthralling historical fiction. It is also a very captivating story. It keeps your attention and it doesn't go off topic. Five Star rating*****. I like this book because it was so funny. Example one: 'I would like to speak to Samuel, please,' said Henry. 'Henry, I'm Samuel!' said Samuel. 'He's a savage!' said Henry (Samuel had been living with the Algonquins for quite some time so he looked rather like one.) Example two: 'How far can you skip a rock?' said Samuel. 'Further than you,' said Richard. Example three: 'Is your mistress eating some of your food rations' Samuel thought when Ann walked up to pick some flowers and she looked rather underfed. I also liked this book because the characters change. For example, Samuel changes from being independent to being dependent. As I said before, five stars for Blood on the River. It's worthy of a Newberry.

    Okay

    I had to read this for a school assignment, and it taught me a lot about jamestown. Although it teaches you a lot, the book can get a little... whats the word... um... boring sometimes. The plot was interesting and i feel that the author could have done a much better job keeping the reader interested.

    An overwhelming adventure

    Young Samuel Collier starts off a street rat in London until he bcomes the young page for Captin John Smith, his life twists into good fortune. Aboard the Susan Constant and in the New World Samuel learns many skills from a noble and intelligent man Captain John Smith. Elisa Carbone tells an overwhelming adventure so I do recomend it. The New World is a tough place to live, it is not anything like the people in England said it would be. They said gold would wash up with the tide. I highly recomend this book because it is thrilling and because of it's theme, that you will not always be at a low rank. Captain Smith starts off a commoner but soon becomes president. I also recomend this book because of how Elisa Carbone makes you feel Samuel's struggles and feelings beacause of his thoughts and actions. New settlers came and sabotaged Indian villages so will the peace they had with the Indians last? Will the colony survive winter? Will samuel become something? If you want these questions answered read the book.

    Good book?

    This was a good book I read for school and it is vry informative, just maybe too informative, what I'm trying to say is that it's not very entertaining. But other than that good book.

    Great Work of Historical Fiction

    This is a great work of historical fiction. I reccomend it to all people who enjoy reading about Jamestown and the very beginning of how the United States came to be.
