Synopsis

The lost colony of Roanoke is one of America's oldest and most intriguing historical mysteries.

The lost colony of Roanoke is America's birthplace and one of America's oldest mysteries. What makes this book unique is that every clue furnished by primary documents is treated as evidence. It answers the three questions essential to solving the mystery: Why were the lost colonists lost? Where did the lost colonists go? Why were the lost colonists never recovered?

The answers come from the clues the colonists themselves left and are startling:
* The colonists were not lost because of bad luck or a shortage of food, but because they were sabotaged! (cont.)
