If you think you are happy and satisfied here in England, it’s only because you don’t know what you’re missing. “And lest any should think the toil might be insupportable, though these things may be had by labor, and diligence: I assure myself there are [those] who delight extremely in vain pleasure, that take much more pains in England, to enjoy it, than I should do here to gain wealth sufficient: and yet I think they should not have half such sweet content: for, our pleasure here is still gains.” (pg. 56) -John Smith A map of John Smith ’ s exploration Routes in 1607-1609map SailSail to America and enjoy the life you deserve The moment you touch the shores of America you’ll know you made the right choicemoment
The beauty of our land is a tangible and unchanging presence- the scenery is gorgeous- a calming and wonderful sight to behold. Any who come, will be in awe of ‘America the Beautiful,’ a fine place to work, a fine place to make a life. “ And what sport doth yield a more pleasing content, and less hurt or charge than angling with a hook, and crossing the sweet air from isle to isle over the silent streams of a clam sea wherein the most curious may find pleasure, profit, and content.” (page 56) -John Smith Crooked RiverCrooked River, Wareham Massachusetts VermontVermont, New England BeachBeach in Southern California

Spend more time doing the things in life that make you happy like raising your family, exploring nature, and relaxing. In America you will enjoy the luxury of working only three days a week to secure more money than you will ever need to spend! “If a man work but three days in seven, he may get more than he can spend, unless he will be excessive.” (pg. 56) -John Smith Family Family spending time together
Fishing is just one example of a job that is flourishing in America. It doesn’t matter who you are, or what you do- you will be successful in America! “Thus, though all men be not fishers: yet all men, whatsoever, may in other matters do as well.” (pg. 56) -John Smith New England Fishing Village by artist Kate Eller Sunset at ‘ Dead Duck ’ (Eliot Boat Launch) Taken by Abby Prince, Summer 2010 Spring Flowers in Maine Taken by Abby Prince, Spring 2010

Fowles’ Appeals Appeals used throughout presentation: “A prominent American trait, it is one that advertisers like to hook on to because it identifies their product with winning and success.” (from #6: Need to Achieve) “The focus here is upon the independence and integrity of the individual; this need is the antithesis of the need for guidance and is unlike any of the social needs.” (from #10: Need for Autonomy) “An appeal to the need for autonomy often co-occurs with one for the need to escape, since the desire to duck out of our social obligations, to seek rest or adventure, frequently takes the form of one-person flight.” (from #11: Need to Escape) “We take precautions to diminish future threats.” (from #12: Need to Feel Safe) “Many advertisement in a question-and-answer format is strumming this need.” (from #14: Need to Satisfy Curiosity)
