    My America: Our Strange New Land

    My America: Our Strange New Land

    by Patricia Hermes

    After 71 days at sea, 9-year-old Elizabeth Barker is thrilled to be on dry land, arriving in the first permanent English colony in Jamestown, Virginia. Lizzie keeps a journal for Caleb, her twin brother who stayed in England because of his weak lungs. In her buoyant entries, Lizzie tells of the abundant forests, trading with and learning from the Indians, and adventures with her new friends. Late on a May afternoon in 1607, three ships, the Susan Constant, the Discovery, and Godspeed, slowly made their way up the James River in Virginia. There in the midst of the marshes, they made land and hung their flag--England's flag--establishing America's first permanent English colony in Jamestown, Virginia. In 1609, the first ship carrying women and children arrived.
