This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic, timeless works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
The authors, writing for the National Park Service in 1956, relate a fascinating tale of the colonists’ resources, their possessions, and their manufactures. They relate documentary evidence from England, Virginia, and elsewhere, and then match it up with items found on the site.
In general, this book gives me the impression as a document, which lists various items found in Jamestown and their implications. Therefore the reading at the beginning is quite dull. However, it slowly raises my interests on this historic site, Jamestown, now I really love to know more about early settlers and their advantage.
