Walter Ralegh's Virginia: Roanoke Island and the Lost Colony
Now available for Amazon Kindle and B&N Nook
Twenty years before the founding of Jamestown in Virginia, Sir Walter Ralegh sent more than 100 men, women and children to an uncertain fate in his New World colony that he called "Virginia." Due to unforseen and tragic circumstances, those settlers were left for three years abandoned at Roanoke Island in modern-day North Carolina.
This book tells the full story of English attempts at establishing a New World settlement and puts the attempts by Sir Walter Ralegh in a longer-term context. It also recounts what befell the "Lost Colonists" and offers the most likely theory of what was their ultimate fate.
