The Shipwreck That Saved Jamestown: The Sea Venture Castaways and the Fate of America
By Lorri Glover and Daniel Blake Smith
Anyone interested in Virginia's earliest colonial history ought to get to know the passengers and crew of the Sea Venture. This ship was sent to relieve Jamestown's starving colonists but never made it. The survivors landed on Bermuda, known as the Devil's Isle, where their saga continued. Their story was the inspiration for Shakespeare's The Tempest.
