Some brief overview of this book

November 1587. A report reaches London that Sir Walter Raleighs expedition, which left England months before to land the first English settlers in America, has foundered. On Roanoke Island, off the coast of North Carolina, a tragedy is unfolding. Something has gone very wrong, and the colony—115 men, women, and children—is in trouble. But there will be no rescue. Before help can reach them, all will vanish with barely a trace.

The Lost Colony is Americas oldest unsolved mystery. For four hundred years, the question of what became of the doomed settlers has remained unanswered. Where did they go? What really happened? And yet, as compelling as this riddle is, Roanoke holds a further surprise, for it comprises not one mystery but two—not only what happened to the colonists but why? Why were they marooned on Roanoke Island when their true destination was elsewhere?

In this remarkable work of historical detection, Lee Miller goes back to the original evidence and offers a fresh solution to the enduring riddle. She establishes beyond doubt that the tragedy of the Lost Colony did not begin on the shores of Roanoke but within the inner circle of Queen Elizabeths government. Powerful men had reason to want Raleighs mission to fail, But beyond that, she uses her skills as an anthropologist and ethnohistorian to cast new light on the previously inexplicable puzzles of the Roanoke data. She shows what must have become of the settlers, left to face a hostile world. Narrating a thrilling tale of Court intrigue, spy rings, treachery, sabotage, Native American politics, and power, Lee Miller has finally solved the four-hundred-year-old mystery of the Lost Colony.
