In 1587 Sir Walter Raleigh planted a colony on Roanoke Island in what was known then as "e;Virginia"e;. The colony of over 100 men, women and children disappeared. Or did they? This book traces the probable journey of the colony inland to Robeson County, N.C. Using historical facts, early maps, Indian accounts and current tradition of the Lumbee Indians, the authors present a logical explanation for one of our nation's greatest historical mysteries.
