"Using newly discovered material, historians Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler present a well-rounded portrait of the Jamestown colony and Smith's accomplishments there, as well as new information on the Native Americans Smith and the other colonists encountered. The famous tale of Smith and Pocahontas carried down through history has distorted and even falsified their actual lives, turning them into colonial America's Romeo and Juliet. The Hooblers demythologize Smith's relationship with Pocahontas - who in reality was a preadolescent child - and examine the truth behind her efforts to rescue Smith from death, possibly more than once."--Jacket

Not only was there major damage from the quake itself but broken gas lines sparked a fire that ravaged the city for days.
