In late December 1606, a party of Englishmen set sail for America, representing yet another effort by the English to establish a foothold in the New World. Twenty years earlier, a similar attempt with the Roanoke Colony had ended miserably, with all its inhabitants completely disappearing. Yet the new colony, Jamestown, would ultimately succeed, due largely to the efforts of one individual-Captain John Smith. Smith had already made a name for himself fighting battles from France to Constantinople. But his true destiny awaited him in America. John Smith narrates this intrepid adventurer's storied life, from his upbringing to the hardships he faced in the New World.
