Rate & Review

He fought and beheaded three Turkish adversaries in duels. He was sold into slavery, then murdered his master to escape. He was captured by pirates – twice – and marched to the gallows to be hanged, only to be reprieved seconds before the noose dropped over his head. And all this happened before he was thirty years old. This is Captain John Smith's life.

This is a riveting, enlightening dissection of this mythology-making man, England's arrival on the world stage and the invention of America.
