Jimmy C. Waters. New Bern: 1710 in the Carolinas. Toccoa, GA: Currahee Books, 2009.

This novel takes on a little-known but interesting period in North Carolina history.  Through the experiences of Martin Bender, a young immigrant to the Carolina Colony, the author unravels a complicated tale of religion, war, piracy, and the simple struggle for survival.  Historical persons such as Thomas Cary, Baron de Graffenreid, John Lawson, and Blackbeard figure in the novel as Martin comes to adulthood fighting the Tuscaroras inland and then pirates along the coast.

    This is not Mr. Waters’ site, and I do not know if he checks it. I’m sure that he’d like to see your compliment. You might try contacting him through his publisher Currahee Boooks: http://curraheebooks.com/ or through Facebook using his full name, Jimmy Cherokee Waters
