****.

This is an interesting little book describing the newly discovered Virginia Colony. This book was based on trips to the new colony during the lat 1580's and is one of the earliest glimpses into the native inhabitants, the trees found there and also what kind of animals and plants that can be used as a food source. This was needed information for any brave adventurer that wanted to try a new start in the new world. As a note though, since the book is very old I found that while reading it replace the letter u's with v, and the letter v with u's and it is easier to understand the words. Some words also may have been spelled differently long ago.
