One of the first British attempts to settle North America was in North Carolina. But the Roanoke colony has trouble from the beginning with its location, its food supply, and its relations with the first Americans living nearby. That settlement disappears, but the colony of North Carolina returns to play a vital part in America’s history, from the American Revolution to the Civil War to man’s first powered flight. This funny, colorful graphic novel will excite reluctant readers, prepare students for standardized tests in history and help homeschooling parents!
