I enjoyed the author's style so much that, when I happened across his book "Savage Nation" about Jamestown, I picked it up for my husband (who also has an interest in early American history). We both ended up reading it and liking it. Mr. Woolley's book on John Dee, Queen Elizabeth's astrologer is on my wish list now.
