This volume introduces readers to the beginnings of colonial Virginia, which was home to the first successful British settlement in North America. The narrative begins with the hardships and eventual success of the Jamestown settlement.

Information-rich text paired with corresponding images highlight Virginia's role in the American Revolution, and draw attention to important Virginians such as Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry. This volume was researched and written to support national and state social studies curricula while supporting comprehension through accompanying primary sources, biographies, and maps.
