The Lucky Sovereign Summary

The Lucky Sovereign by Stewart Lees

Sam and his father are full of excitement as they join the colonists setting out from King's Lynn to the new colony of Jamestown in the New World. Along with the other colonists on the Treasurer, Sam has to survive poor rations, seasickness and perilous storms. But one night, disobeying captain's orders, he catches sight of a sinister-looking seaman crouching over his father's sleeping form. Next day, his father discovers that that his bag of sovereigns has gone. But when they make a formal complaint to the captain, who is to be believed - a young boy like Sam, or the seaman Flint? Stewart Lees' story and realistic artwork perfectly capture the atmosphere of life on a 17th- century colonists' voyage and will enthral young readers interested in the past.
