Summary
He fought and beheaded three Turkish adversaries in duels. He was sold into slavery, then murdered his master to escape. He was captured by pirates, twice, and marched to the gallows to be hanged, only to be reprieved seconds before the noose dropped over his head. And all this happened before he was 30 years old. This is Captain John Smith's life. Everyone knows the story of Pocahontas, and how she saved John Smith. And were it not for Smith's leadership, the Jamestown colony would surely have failed. Yet Smith was a far more ambitious explorer and soldier of fortune than these tales suggest - and a far more ambitious self-promoter, too
