From Richard of Jamestown. . .
“YES, MY NAME IS RICHARD MUTTON. Sounds rather queer, doesn’t it? The lads in London town used to vex me sorely by calling, ‘Baa, baa, black sheep,’ whenever I passed them, and yet he who will may find the name Richard Mutton written in the list of those who were sent to Virginia, in the new world, by the London Company, on the nineteenth day of December, in the year of Our Lord, 1606.”
So begins the compelling and historically-accurate Richard of Jamestown, the tale of ten-year-old Richard Mutton, who sailed with Captain John Smith on the Susan B Constant to help found Jamestown Colony.
