Great read that really brings to life the story of the croatoan indians. Many times history finds itself trapped and swayed by myths and legends, and the Lost Colony is no exception. This book and this man is real to the passion - he lives there and lives it - and that shows in the writing. As a teacher of history and a historian on this particular topic - it is refreshing to see this writing and know that it is possible for truths to be viewed and understood. If you are in the Buxton area be sure to stop at the Museum as well - much more can be learned by visiting there!

Scott Dawson makes a compelling case for Croatoan, now the southern part of Hatteras Island, as the destination of the Lost Colony. The document is somewhat lacking in citations, but his personal knowledge of the territory partially compensates for this.

American history has been so distorted by legend, distortion and just plain untruths that it is refreshing to read an account that resorts to the facts and only the facts. The author has painstakenly researched the subject and has not been swayed by the romantic aspects or the local commercial intrests to bring us an entertaining and factual account of the story. He should be given the recognition and respect due to a true historian.
