THE SHIPWRECK THAT SAVED JAMESTOWN The Sea Venture Castaways and the Fate of America

by | Read by Michael Prichard

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

History so often turns on chance events, and the survival of the Jamestown colony is a dramatic example. This audiobook tells the surprisingly little-known story of how the Virginia Company's ship, SEA VENTURE, changed the course of American history after arriving at Jamestown in 1610. Michael Prichard maintains a steady voice as he relates the unspeakable suffering of the earlier settlers, who, when the SEA VENTURE finally arrived, were enduring the "starving time," which had reduced them to eating the bodies of their dead. Prichard's pace is just right, leaving the listener enough time to absorb the details in the narrative and keeping the story moving even when the text bogs down in detail.
