The Lost Colony

Much like the collapse of Mayan civilization around 900 AD, the fate of the Roanoke colony is one of many famous mysteries in history. In the historical novel Roanoke: The Lost Colony we read about one possible and plausible explanation as to what happened with the Lost Colony. Roanoke was first established in 1585 and then re-established in 1587; the book is told from the perspective of William Wythers who is a sixteen-year-old runaway apprentice and colonist at Roanoke. Two themes running through the book are relations with Native Americans and the rivalry with Spain. In sum, The Lost Colony is a good mix of character development, historical fact, historical fiction, and speculation.
