Jamestown’s 400th

Filed under: New books — John Maass @ 2:49 am

Get ready for a deluge of new books on Jamestown, just in time for that Virginia colony’s 400th anniversary in 2007.  I guess the publishers think that a number of books to fill up museum and visitor center bookshelves will be the best thing for tourists.  Just a quick search on Amazon.com for titles to be released in 2007 shows:

1607: Jamestown and the New World by Dennis Montgomery

The Jamestown Colony: An Encyclopedia by Frank Grizzard and D. Boyd Smith

A Savage Kingdom: The True Story of Jamestown, 1607, and the Settlement of America by Benjamin Woolley

The Jamestown Project by Karen Ordahl Kupperman

Jamestown, Quebec, Santa Fe: Three North American Beginnings by James Kelly and Barbara Clark Smith

1607: A New Look at Jamestown by Karen Lange

Jamestown, 1607 by Michael L. Cooper

Some just came out in 2006:

Empires in the Forest: Jamestown And the Beginning of America by Avery Chenoweth and Robert Llewellyn

Jamestown, the Buried Truth by William M. Kelso

The Deadly Politics of Giving: Exchange and Violence at Ajacan, Roanoke, and Jamestown by Seth Mallios
