The Heroes of History series brings to life the true stories of fascinating men and women who changed the course of history. Thrown overboard, enslaved by the Turks, captured by pirates, rescued by a princess—the story of Englishman John Smith would seem unbelievable were it fiction. Young John first sought adventure in Europe, traveling as far as Russia. But his real passion was the New World, and in 1607 he sailed to North America with the men who would establish the first lasting Btitish settlement—Jamestown.
