The Lost Colony of Roanoke is one of the oldest unsolved mysteries in American history. With many people racing towards unearthing the secrets and facts about race, gender, and immigration, this book takes the readers through a clandestine journey right from where it all began. It was the year 1587 when 115 men, women, and children arrived by Queen Elizabeth I to Roanoke Island just situated on the coast of North Carolina. They were to establish England’s first foothold with lots of hopes and aspirations.
John White, the leader of the Colony goes on a resupply mission only to find that the settlers disappeared upon his return. “A Secret Token” was the only clue that was left behind carved on the tree. These colonists were never to be found by any Europeans or Whites. No one ever knew what happened to the Lost Colony of Roanoke. It is more than 400 years with people still looking for answers. American historians were left with nothing but false stories, fantasies and dead ends. Andrew Lawler’s encounter with a British Archaeologist guided him towards answers to one of the greatest historical mysteries in American History. He is also guided by several researchers and characters that were obsessed and hell-bent on determining whatever happened to the Lost Colony.
The book is both stirring and fascinating with The Washington Post calling it “Crazy Fun” and “Surprisingly Fresh and Powerful”. The Wall Street Journal also finds it “the most authoritative account of the Lost Colony to date”. If not anything, this book will surely shed some light as to what happened to the missing colonists. “Mr Lawler is an intrepid guide to this treacherous territory” says The Economist. “His willingness to chase down every lead, no matter how outlandish, and his enthusiasm for the journey as much as the destination, make The Secret Token a lively and engaging read”, further added The Economist. While Kirkus, the American book review magazine says “In this enjoyable historical adventure, an unsolved mystery reveals violent political and economic rivalries and dire personal struggles”.
