Dawson's Book a Smash!

After 10 years of digging on Hatteras Island, Scott Dawson (the main character in our film) has published a book announcing the evidence that they have found.

The Lost Colony and Hatteras Island came out on June 15, 2020 and even in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, has exploded on the Outer Banks and beyond!

What started off as a few local book signings and one local news appearance on WAVY 10 has grown into a viral story that originated in

The Virginian Pilot and gained national attention through outlets like VICE and Newsweek.

Dawson's book reached the #1 spot in Amazon's history category and #625 in overall books on Amazon -- that's out of 8 MILLION!!

We couldn't be prouder of Scott since we know first hand what he has gone through, and fought against, to get this story out to the public.

We will be doing our part, as well, when we bring this film to UNC-TV next year and possibly even national PBS, given the renewed national interest in this story.

If you haven't read the book yet, get your copy now and see what all the fuss is about!

Have a great week,

Rain Bennett, Director
