The disappearance in 1587 of 115 men, women, and children who settled on Roanoke Island in North Carolina is the subject of this audiobook. Narrator David Lawrence transports listeners on their harrowing journey using excellent phrasing and rhythm to explain, with few collaborating artifacts, what historians think happened. The author, who admits to being obsessed with the story, travels from Hatteras Island to London to interview historians and archaeologists. However, impressive clues turn out to be elaborate hoaxes, and DNA testing, not definitive. Lawrence navigates the anecdotes and research and manages to keep listeners involved in the quest. While the settlers' disappearance still remains a mystery, their story is entertaining and informative. E.E.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
