For those of you new to this forum, I would like to take th opportunity to make you aware of a book on the life of John Dods that I have written:
My book - To Plant a Nation: The John Dods Story - has been printed in paperback and is now ready for sale.First, let me tell you what the book is not: it is not a reference book full ofscholarly references.What it is is a 185-page narrative of what John Dods’ life must have been like in England and America.The book is based in fact and tells the story that actually happened in the settling of Jamestown, Virginia.Because there are few or no records of John Dods’ life, I have used what we do know and placed John in those factual situations. I have annotated the text to describe what is fact and what is fiction. If you believe John Dods is your ancestor, then this book is for you.If you are not sure about John Dods (and the facts are sketchy at best), then, for you, this book is a good description of life in Jamestown.Incidentally, this book would make great Christmas presents for your relatives. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your return email address so that I can send you the particulars on how to obtain a copy.
