Scott Skipper

Author Scott Skipperabout this book: Exiled by the English Civil War and afoul of the colonial governor, George Skipper seeks refuge—and women—with the Indians of southern Virginia. His endearing ways elevate him to the status of 'chief man' of the Nottoway Indians. George and his descendants aid the Indians in their struggle against the depredations of the encroaching colonists. In the process the Skipper gene pool spreads across the countryside and those endearing family traits get preserved for posterity.

This whimsical tale is based on historical events. Much of what seems to be nonsense actually happened to real people in the historical record. As for the parts that are pure invention—well, if you knew the Skipper family the way that I do, you wouldn't doubt them for a minute.

I intend this book to appeal to those who enjoy history, genealogy, and a good laugh. It is about my own ancestors and is the product of fifteen years of research, plus over sixty years of observing my family's traits.
