New Jamestown Mystery Unearthed!

Last week, a new archaeological find at Jamestown: a skeleton that may well have been George Yeardley. 

He’s a central figure in early Virginia history --and in my novel:

JAMESTOWN: THE NOVEL: The Story of America’s Beginning

(New York: Argo Navis, 2014; originally published as A Durable Fire, New York: William Morrow, 1990; Avon, 1991)

 “A complex tale of courage, treachery, cultural conflict, administrative bungling and desperate choices.”—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
​ “A captivating first novel that combines Bernhard’s expertise as an American history professor with a vivid, sure prose style to produce a rich tale of suffering and triumph in 1600s America.”—KIRKUS REVIEWS

Fiction, with a supplement of eyewitness accounts.
Now an Amazon paperback and e-book.
