"Scholars and lovers of history, take note. Don't be put off by the title of David Price's excellent new account of the Jamestown colony and the levelheaded soldier who, above all others, ensured its survival.... Price, who holds degrees from Harvard, Cambridge, and the College of William and Mary in Virginia, tells the story straight. The unvarnished record in packed with best-selling elements: greed, arrogance, intrigue, valor, stupidity, torture and cruelties of the worst sort, as well as valor, suspense, and cataclysmic tragedy. Then there is that remarkable relationship between John Smith and Pocahontas, favorite daughter of the Indian chief Powhatan.... Price interweaves all these elements with a graceful, reportorial style that never forgets the humanity of the individuals involved.... John Smith once had a much higher profile in U.S. history, revered in the same light as the Founding Fathers and the framers of the Constitution. LOVE AND HATE IN JAMESTOWN reminds us of the station Smith once held.... Price's book makes an excellent case for pulling Smith from the dusty corners of American history and restoring him to glory.... LOVE AND HATE IN JAMESTOWN presents an excellent counter to pop culture's fixation on so-called reality television programming. The passages describing the horrific Starving Time or the vivisection of a captured Englishman surpass 'Survivor' and 'Fear Factor' in their ability to rivet one's attention. Middle- and high- school teachers of English and history should read them aloud to students. The lessons are many. Most readers will find the book equally engaging for other reasons. LOVE AND HATE IN JAMESTOWN has the potential to do for Capt. John Smith what UNDAUNTED COURAGE by the late Stephen Ambrose did for Lewis and Clark: rekindle appreciation for our history among a new generation of Americans, and deservedly so." — Orlando Sentinel
