Biography of captain john smith by George Canning Hill( Book )

3 editions published between 1859 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1580, John Smith started exploring at an early age. After his father died, Smith set out away from home at the age of 16, joined a ship crew and sailed off to sea. After earning his sea legs, he served as mercenary in the army of Henry IV of France and fought for Dutch independence from Spain. Deciding the military was too stringent for his taste, Smith hopped ships until he was in the Mediterranean Sea. There, he engaged in trade and piracy and fought the Ottoman Turks in the Long War of the early 1600s. After demonstrating his sailing and fighting abilities, Smith was promoted to captain while fighting for the Austrian Habsburgs for Michael the Brave in 1601. Having beheaded Turkish commanders in three duels, Smith was knighted by the Transylvanian Prince Sigismund Bathory and awarded with a horse and coat of arms. In 1602, Smith was wounded in a small battle with the Tatars. He was captured and sold as a slave. In his diary, Smith writes that his master, a Turkish nobleman, sent him as a gift to his mistress in Constantinople. After a short time, the woman fell in love with Smith and sent him to Crimea, where he escaped. Returning to England in 1604, a 24-year-old Smith spent the next few months searching for more adventure. In 1606, he became involved in the Virginia Company of London, which had plans to colonize Virginia for King James. Together with a crew and his page, Samuel Collier, Smith set sail to the New World in December. There, he would be instrumental in the founding of Jamestown, befriend Pocahontas and become a legendary figure in history
