Description
Sam and his father sail from England to America to begin a new life in Jamestown, in this illustrated tale for readers 7 to 9. But they run into trouble when their money is stolen and they have to defend themselves before the governor of the colony. Their friend Old Jed had given Sam a lucky coin—a gold sovereign that once protected Jed from a musket ball. Would it help keep them from servitude now? Stewart Lees illustrates his story in realistic colored pencil drawings.

"In this picture book, a boy and his father set sail in 1616 for the new settlement of Jamestown. Life at sea is rough, with severe weather and limited rations. However, Sam assists Tom, the cook, in the galley, and is guaranteed extra rations in return for his help. When approaching the storeroom one day, he hears noises from within, and locks the door. The thief inside turns out to be a crew member named Flint, who is brutally flogged, and Sam knows that he has made a nasty enemy. When Flint steals Sam's father's moneybag, the man is arrested for having no money, and is threatened with slavery. In the end, the thief is exposed, and the money is returned to its owner.... The colored-pencil drawings are beautifully rendered."—School Library Journal
