Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Big Chief Elizabeth: How England's Adventurers Gambled and Won the New World (Paperback)
This is even better that Nathaniel's Nutmeg. I've seldom encountered such a spirited history. At times it is very funny (with one little anecdote that perhaps explains the origin of the phrase "raining cats and dogs"), and at other times it is heartbreaking, especially when the author succeeds in breathing life into the often doomed colonists.
