A Man Most Driven:John Smith, Pocahontas, and the ...

Founding of America.  Who was the real Captain John Smith? Readers and historians have treated the dramatic accounts of his exploits with a grain of salt. There's no question that he is a cornerstone of American history. But what happened before and after Jamestown? Award-winning BBC producer Peter Firstbrook (Lost on Everest; The Obamas) has created "a biography paired with a detective story" to answer the question. By following John Smith's footsteps from Lincolnshire into Transylvania, on to Jamestown and then to New England, he tests Smith's claims against the historical record and comes to a new understanding of "one of the great English adventurers". Copies of A Man Most Driven will be available for purchase and signing.
