The Lost Colony is America's most enduring legend. It was the first English colony in North America. Virginia Dare, the first American, was born there. But soon after its founding in 1587, everything - the colonists, their effects, even their homes ...
- vanished. Did they starve to death? Were they killed by Indians or Spanish raiders? The only clue was the word Croatan carved on a tree. In this brilliant, mesmerizing book, Lee Miller seeks the answer in Elizabeth I's inner circle, and proves a case of sabotage and murder. Drawing on her knowledge of Native American history, she reconstructs vividly what fate must have befallen the doomed settlers.
