Stunning
29 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Actually, I saw a DVD with the title 'The New World - Nightmare in Jamestown' brought out by "National Geographic" (NG)

It was worth knowing the reality and the circumstances under which the initial settlers struggled and survived.

It is worth recommending for everyone who is interested in knowing the history of United States of America.

It arouses in us to actually see the 'Jamestown' site in Virginia.

As always with any output from 'National Geographic' this indeed meets 'NG's benchmark.

It is sort of eye opener to learn the hardships that the early settlers underwent to make a permanent settlement.
