Description - Our Strange New Land by Patricia Hermes
In May 1607, three ships sailed up the James River in Virginia. In the riverbank marshes, they made land and hung the flag -- England's flag -- establishing the first permanent English colony in Jamestown, Virginia. In 1609, the first ship carrying women and children arrived.After 71 days at sea, nine-year-old Elizabeth Barker is thrilled to be on dry land. Lizzie keeps a journal for Caleb, her twin brother who stayed in England because of his weak lungs. In her buoyant entries, Lizzie tells of the abundant forests, trading with and learning from the Indians, and adventures with her new friends.
