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

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
