Roanoke: Solving the Mystery of the Lost Colony
In November 1587, 115 men, women, and children were marooned on Roanoke Island. Before help can reach them, all vanished with barely a trace.

While narrating a thrilling tale of Court intrigue, spy rings, treachery, sabotage, Native American politics and power, the author shows what must have become of the settlers when left to a hostile world.
