About the Author

James Tormey is a retired Army Colonel.

About the Book
In this gripping first-person narrative, James Tormey revisits the trials and successes of Englishman John Rolfe through his own voice. It was a near miracle that he reached Virginia in 1610 after shipwreck in Bermuda. With a crew distraught with fatigue and malnourishment, colonists who want to return to England, the challenge of war with Chief Powhatan, Rolfe must overcome these and other obstacles to guarantee his own survival and begin his experiments with the cultivation of tobacco. Using historical facts and timelines, Tormey creates a vivid and emotional tale that highlights an indomitable John Rolfe whose marriage to Pocahontas brings the blessing of peace to the colony. The birth of their son Thomas provides the hope that their aspirations will continue through the lives of their descendants.
