He tells the exciting true story of the settlement of the Popham Colony, the sister colony to Jamestown. Suffering bitter weather, starvation, fire, and death, they endure for fifteen months. The Popham Colony sets the stage for the future settlement of the Plymouth Plantation by the Pilgrims in 1620. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Alex Popham King is a genealogist and archaeologist by avocation.
