"Stephen was just an ordinary man, with a wife, three sons, seven
daughters, a small house, some farmland for his corn, and cows
named Motley, Sympkins, Curled, and Red. These are the
extraordinary adventures of an ordinary man."
A heart warming tribute!

"This riveting historical narrative describes how the 150 castaways were seduced
by the island’s unexpected pleasures for almost a year and were later riven by

their own hands and arrived safely in Jamestown to face the daunting task of
rebuilding America’s first permanent colony."
