English America came close to disappearing in its very first years. This book tells the astonishing story and brings the Jamestown colony fully and accurately to life. Critics have hailed Love and Hate in Jamestown as history at its best, combining readable narrative and authoritative research.

Drawing on extensive original documents, David A. Price paints intimate portraits of the major figures and their conflicts: from the formidable monarch Chief Powhatan, to the resourceful but unpopular leader John Smith, to the spirited Pocahontas. He also gives a rare balanced view of relations between the English and the natives and debunks popular myths about the colony.

Parking is available at the Providence Hilton Parking Garage: $3/3 hours.
