In 1587, years before colonists landed at Jamestown, English pioneers established a colony at Roanoke, N.C. But the colony disappeared, and to this day the fate of the colonists is still unknown.

Burriss trace the development of English efforts to colonize North America, from piracy to respectability, and eventually to permanence.
