Overview

Set in nineteenth-century America, The Lost Colony takes place on a mysterious island unknown to the rest of the world. No one knows it exists except its citizens, a colorful and outrageous band of capitalists, inventors, hucksters, and freemen. They jealously guard the island's fantastic wealth from the prying fingers of the outside world, even as they attempt to conceal its captivating secrets from one another. The Lost Colony is a boiling concoction of slavery, patriotism, religion, and greed—in many ways, the story of America itself.

The first in an addictive new series for readers of all ages, The Lost Colony is a self-contained world filled with endearing and memorable characters, whose hilarious foibles overlay a plot that resonates with America's own struggles with issues such as profiteering, racism, and slavery. Thoughtfully written, richly illustrated, and always hilarious, The Lost Colony welcomes you into a new world.
