Savage Kingdom


Author: Benjamin Woolley


Four centuries ago, and thirteen years before the Mayflower, a group of men — led by a one-armed ex-pirate, an epileptic aristocrat, a reprobate cleric, and a government spy — arrived in Virginia aboard a fleet of three ships and set about trying to create a settlement on a tiny island on the James River.  Despite their shortcomings, and against the odds, they built Jamestown, a ramshackle outpost that laid the foundations of the British Empire and the United States of America.
