About the book

In Blood on the River Samuel Collier goes from lowly commoner, and street thief, to Captain John Smith's personal page and heads off to the New World. Upon arrival he finds that the gorgeous shores of Virginia are not the paradise of gold and plenty that he expected. In the New World Samuel finds it difficult to determine who is a friend and who is a foe. Blood on the River is based on the true story of the settlement of Jamestown, and brings to life this pivotal moment in American history (1607).
