Item description for Captain John Smith: and His Brave Adventures (H Books) by R. E. Pritchard...
Christened in 1580 with a name so common as to be almost anonymous, he set out on what he called brave adventures to make a name for himself, becoming know as a soldier, a pirate, colonist and author. Little did he know that his name would forever be associated with that of a young Native American princess, Pocahontas.
Smith was a remarkable man, in the great tradition of the Elizabethan adventurers: brave, resourceful, intelligent, with a vision of what America could become. His life reads like an adventure story, of battles, disasters, triumphs and of a refusal to give in. His armorial motto, Vincere est Vivere translates as To Conquer is to Live.
