Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Scott S. Floyd
King James, William Penn, James Madison, and Chief Powhatan are probably familiar names. But when was the last time you heard or read about Sir Thomas Dale, Sir Thomas Gates, or Sir Edwin Sandys. Were you aware that movies were made about Rebecca Rolfe (formerly known as Pocahontas). There are more important people in the history of Jamestown than the classroom textbooks credit. A classroom basal is limited in the number of pages allocated to a topic. That is where this book comes in. Any unit that addresses the beginning of the American colonies should start with this text. It chronicles both the colonists and Indians during this initial time of colonization. The reader will uncover minute but very interesting details about time period. The text ends with the introduction of slaves into Virginia. Any instructor can easily integrate this book into the curriculum at the intermediate level and above thus making history come to life for these students. It is part of the "The Drama of American History" series.
