Summary (From the publisher):

Nat and Richard are two orphaned thieves on the streets of London. When John Smith offers them passage as laborers on a merchant ship bound for the New World they jump at the opportunity. What luck! The land of Virginia is rumored to be paved with gold. They will be rich! But quickly the boys learn the awful truth: blinded by greed and arrogance, the settlers of the new English colony at Jamestown are unprepared for the brutal reality of frontier life. Inadequate supplies, illness, petty squabbling, malarial summer heat, and bitter winter cold decimate the colony. Those who escape death are reduced to chewing on roots and show leather to survive -- and, in one horrific instance, cannibalizing a corpse.

Yet by spring more colonists arrive, dreaming of paradise but finding a colony on the brink of starvation.

Through it all Nat and Richard must fall back on their wits to survive.
