Description - Savage Kingdom by Benjamin Woolley

Four centuries ago, and thirteen years before the Mayflower , a group of men--led by a one-armed ex-pirate, an epileptic aristocrat, a reprobate cleric, and a government spy--arrived in Virginia aboard a fleet of three ships and set about trying to create a settlement on a tiny island in the James River. Despite their shortcomings, and against the odds, they built Jamestown, a ramshackle outpost that laid the foundations of the British Empire and the United States of America. Drawing on new discoveries, neglected sources, and manuscript collections scattered across the world, Savage Kingdom challenges the textbook image of Jamestown--revealing instead a reckless, daring enterprise led by outcasts of the Old World who found themselves interlopers in a new one.
