9780847673391: Roanoke: The Abandoned Colony

Roanoke: The Abandoned Colony recovers the earliest days of exploration and settlement—the often forgotten years between Columbus's voyages and the landing of the Mayflower. Writing from a background in both Indian and English history, Karen Ordahl Kupperman movingly describes the first English colony in America, bringing historical themes to life through fascinating portraits of individuals who lived the drama of the lost colony.

About the Author:

Karen Ordahl Kupperman is Silver Professor of History at New York University. She is the award-winning author of Indians and English: Facing Off in Early America and Providence Island, 1630–1641: The Other Puritan Colony.

Review:

Roanoke is the best book on the subject . . . skillfully reconstructing the events and invoking the personalities of England's first American outpost. And more than any previous work on the subject, it reveals how the Indians played crucial roles in the rise and fall of Raleigh's Lost Colony. (Alden T. Vaughan, Columbia University)

Professor Kupperman provides what must surely be the definitive account of the 'lost colonists' of Roanoke. She tells a dramatic story of courage, greed, and misadventure. . . . Anyone curious about the enduring mysteries of Roanoke will enjoy Kupperman's book. (T. H. Breen, Northwestern University)

Evokes a powerful sense of this dramatic, yet tragic, chapter in the English colonial experience in North America. (CHOICE)

A sensitive, stimulating, and exceptionally well-written book. (Journal of American History)

A skillful and readable account of a fascinating chapter in American history. (Journal of Southern History)

A work of drama and intrigue. (Los Angeles Times)
