Summary
From firsthand documents Mr. Chatterton has built up a charming and authentic biography. He admits that Smith may have been something of a coxcomb and a boaster, but he finds him nevertheless a great hero. As an epic of daring, the account of the eastern adventures is striking indeed, but the chief interest of the book lies in its story of Smith's career in Virginia. - Typescript affixed to flyleaf
