Captain John Smith


Exciting true stories of men and women who changed the world. A Slave who became a renowned scientist? A timid child who grew up to nurse soldiers on deadly battlefields? A pioneer farm boy who ascended to the presidency?

With consistent historical depth and an engaging narrative style, Heroes Of History chronicles the remarkable true stories of fascinating men and women who changed the course of history.

John Smith (1580-1631) 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 and distinguishing himself in the wars that raged across the Old World.

But John Smith’s real passion was for the New World, and in 1607 he sailed to North America with the men who would establish the first lasting British settlement-Jamestown. There he fought level-headedly for the policies that would enable the fragile community to survive starvation, disease, and deadly attacks to become a foothold in the New World.
