    Surviving Jamestown by Patrick H.

    I think this was a very good book because it is a story that is mixed with mystery and exploration. For example, it is good because it gives you an idea of what life was really like in colonial Virginia and what the colonists had to do to survive.The book is really about a boy who gets to go to the new world over the ocean.
    They travel through very harsh weather to get to Virginia.A lot of the people died on the journey but many of the colonists made it and moved on.I would recommend this book to kids at least ten to thirteen years of age because there is some violence that might disturb younger children.This story is kind of a long book for some people,but I would take my time to really read the book.Older people might like this book because it gives a lot of details and information.It also tells what they ate and what they used to live. From the information in this book I would recommend this book for a project of some sort.

    Review: This is an excellent informative book which I have read

    Review: This is an excellent informative book which I have read to my class several years to prepare them for our field trip to historic Jamestown Settlement.

    The adventure begins on board the Susan Constance while docked on the Thames River. She is one of three ships setting sail for the New World in the year 1606. Sam Collier is a twelve year old boy ready for an adventure. He is leaving his native England to be the page for John Smith, one of the original settlers of Jamestown, Virginia.

    Sam faces incredible hardships during the voyage and first several years of the settlement. The reader is given significant insight into the conflicts and difficulties which plagued this first permanent settlement.

    This book, an engaging adventure book which will appeal to upper elementary and middle school students, is well written and engaging while teaching history. After reading this book students will have a better understanding of the historic Jamestown time period and the bigger struggles which were a major part of the early colony.

    The illustrations by Paul Casale are a pleasing addition to the story and enhance its value to younger readers. (rev. A.Freeman, Grade 6 teacher)
