From the Publisher:

"What Lee Miller offers here is an exciting and original look at a great historical mystery, and her conclusions are as convincing as her research is thorough. The intellectual breadth and literary elegance of this book are perhaps matched only by the novel solution that her sensitivity to her subject and her anthropological acumen allow her to venture. Roanoke is deeply compelling, so much so that it is surely destined to claim a permanent place in the American colonial record."
--A. David Napier
Professor of Anthropology
Middlebury College

"Roanoke is ethnohistory at its best, written in a vivid style and bursting with new insights. Miller is not afraid to ask questions historians should have asked but haven't. Using anthropological tools, she brings the Lost Colony to life and, at the same time, has created an absorbing and thrilling read, full of fascinating details most historians omit. This will be a benchmark study, uniquely deserving of serious scholarly attention. A must for everyday readers and for the college classroom."
--Dr. Catherine Good
Chairman, Graduate Program in History and Ethnohistory
National School of Anthropology and History, Mexico City
