Summary
In Roanoke: The Abandoned Colony, Karen Ordahl Kupperman recounts one of the most gripping stories in American history. Writing from a background in both Indian and English history, she movingly describes the first English colony in America and places it within the context of the most recent historical research. She analyzes Carolina Algonquian culture in order to understand the Indians' response to the Europeans who intruded on them and brings historical themes to life through fascinating portraits of individuals who lived the drama of the lost colony. - Back cover
