A splendid romp through history!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Big Chief Elizabeth: How England's Adventurers Gambled and Won the New World (Paperback)
Giles Milton brings history to life in an entertaining and fascinating manner.
Using letters and surviving documents of the period, the writer brings to life all the players in the story of England's attempts to colonise the New World. With the storytelling skill of a great novelist, this book will amuse, suprise and occasionally shock, as the courage, stupidity and brutality of the period unravel.
From Walter Raleigh to Pocahontas, this book has it all!
