The Planters - by Bill Rogers
They sought their fortunes; they kindled a nation.
The Planters is a story of two English brothers in early Jamestown in the mid 1600s. In the Crown Colony of Virginia they make their lot, learning to set aside their London Gentry ways to gain an intimate knowledge of the land and its prior inhabitants. They overcome many years of hardship and labor, serving initially as indentured servants, working along side the African slaves, making friends - - and enemies. Both brothers prosper, but , that prosperity is quickly threatened by the marauding Indians, and worse, Governor Sir William Berkeley and his "Tidewater Aristocracy" perverting the justice of the House of Burgesses and pilfering the wealth of the colony for his own gain.
