Considered too young and too scrawny to be of much use, David Warren sails aboard the Susan Constant for the new colony of Virginia. But the New World isn’t quite the adventure the colonists hoped for. Swamp fever, brutal winters, gnawing starvation, and unexpected enemies plague the colony of Jamestown. Even under John Smith’s unrelenting leadership, can David prove his strength in a new, fragile colony? This Dear-Bought Land is an unabridged edition of the original work first published in 1957.
