Synopsis

Jamestown The Perilous Adventure by Olga Hall-Quest

Just in time for the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, Virginia comes an updated edition of Olga Hall-Quest's classic. Hall-Quest provides an absorbing account of life in the first permanent colony of what is now the United States and the struggles of those who settled there. Experts from the Jamestown National Historical Site have fact-checked every detail and the curator has written a brand-new foreword - complete with recently discovered information about the colony.

Reviews

The settlement of Jamestown, based on original records and historical research, is portrayed vividly and dramatically...will have as wide appeal as any popular adventure story. -- Library Journal
