Lesson 10 Sir Walter Raleigh and John White

2-3 Essay of why I would or would not move from europe to the new lands?

I would not move to this new land.The reason why I would not move to this new is because I don't want to risk dying by native Americans.That and also because not even the explorers know what to expect on this new place.But there is a couple of pros and cons to it as well.But the worst thing would probably be dying by native Americans.Or dying of hunger or disease.But a plus would be that I could have a farm or maybe have my own land in the middle of nowhere.
Another thing is I wouldn't have to pay the taxes that we have in Europe or be told what to do by the monarch.But transportation would be a big problem.But that's what grass and trees are for.Every walk would be beautiful.But what weather would they have as hot as the spring or summer or as cold as winter and fall.A problem would be that war would be going on with the natives so when I go to sleep I might not wake up again.Although I wonder about food like what animals they have or if any and also crops.How would we know how to farm our crops with the resources that we have? I guess I'll never know until I go there.But I probably wouldn't go anyway.That's what I think will happen or why I will or would not go there at that time.
