"Klingelhofer and his impressive roster of associates offer us a carefully documented chronicle of two decades of creative research into the fate of Sir Walter Raleigh's effort to plant a permanent English colony on the Carolina coast. Unlike hundreds of previous efforts seeking that same end, these essays set forth in meticulous detail the most promising results of their documentary, cartographical, archaeological, historical, and literary investigations."—Larry E. Tise, author of Circa 1903: North Carolina's Outer Banks at the Dawn of Flight
"This engaging book gives readers the tools to judge claims concerning the Lost Colony, and it also demonstrates the process of historical research and the kinds of questions documentary and archaeological research can and can't answer."—Charles R. Ewen, East Carolina University
