The outstanding authority on early English exploration and settlement in America, David Beers Quinn (1909-2002), concluded that most of the Roanoke Colonists made their way to an area on or near the Elizabeth River in southeastern Virginia. There they lived with a friendly tribe until well into the first decade of the seventeenth century. They were massacred by Powhatan about 1607.

Richard Proescher fictionalizes this idea in his novel, Natishma, Shaman of the Chesapeakes, Friend of the Roanoke Colony, and reveals the world of a Native American culture is at the time of first contact with English people.

This is Richard Proescher’s first novel. Richard is working on his second novel.

Natishma, Shaman of the Chesapeakes, Friend of the Roanoke Colony was published by Booklocker.com and is available in all major book outlets, Booklocker.com, Amazon.com Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million. Also available as e-book for Kindle, Nook, and iTunes.
