When Smith was young he sold all of his books to get enough money to sale with a crew but his dad stopped him.
At the age of 16 Smith was captured and sold as a slave but in 1604 Smith killed his master and rain back to England.
Even though he went through all of that he never gave up.
To choose how was in charge they had a list of 7 people the names were listed in a order that told every one how had what jobs.
In Janestown the houses were bad because now one had experience on making houses and every one was more interested in silver and gold except Smith.
One day a fire happened and burnt half the town the colonists future looked bleak.
After Smith took over thay started to build better homes and stop looking for silver and gold.

When Smith got the Indians friendship he met Pocahontas and she became his sister.
