Thomas Harriot explored Virginia with an open mind and appreciated the new the world. He almost looked at them as barbaric, even in terms of religion. They have already a religion of their own, which is far from the truth (Thomas Harriot. Even though they have developed some sort of government and religion he still sees it as far from the truth. Again, showing that they have an idea of how to live in a structured society yet the ideas they follow are wrong.

By the famous English astronomer, mathematician, ethnographer, and linguist. He went on at least one expedition, around 1585-86, and spent time in the New World visiting Roanoke Island off the coast of North Carolina furthering his knowledge by learning the Algonquian language. His account of the voyage, A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia, was published in 1588 (probably written in 1587). The Report contains an early account of the Native American population encountered by the expedition; it was very influential upon later English explorers and colonists. His views of Native Americans' industry and capacity to learn were later largely ignored in favour of the parts of the "Report" about extractable minerals and resources.

for the history buff

A lot of omissions but the book was inexpensive so.

As I indicated in my title this book is an excellent primary resource for historians or students studying history. While it can be annoying to read words spelled in the older manner once you become accustomed to the spelling the book is a great read and offers good insight into the minds of the early English explorers to the Americas. Obviously one should be wary that the original authors were writing to make themselves appear nobler and the Americas to seem more ideal.

As advertised. This book was the one I needed first as I had to use it within the week. Got it early!!!

This is a beautifully written and illustrated account of English American encounters.

I got this one for my Kindle and I really enjoyed it, BUT, be forewarned! This book was written in the early 17th century, the syntax, structure, spelling, and nomenclature are archaic and difficult. The author never read Struck and didn't have spell-check!!! You will put some real effort into reading this book, but it's worth it, you will gain insight and knowledge about the place and period that you didn't have before.
