Overview

Knight of the Purple Ribbon: A Novel Baron de Graffenried's Colonial Adventures by Jennifer Wells

�Knight of the Purple Ribbon: A Novel (Baron de Graffenried�s Colonial Adventures)� is a historic novel loosely based on the real life adventures of the charming Swiss nobleman Baron Christoph de Graffenried, (ancestor to former First Lady Laura Bush, Senator Charles Robb and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ellen Glasgow). The book focuses on de Graffenried�s founding of New Bern, the second oldest town in North Carolina in 1710, and is filled with drama, romance and suspense.

Events such as Cary�s Rebellion and the Tuscarora War are brought to live and presented from a very human perspective.

From the castles of Switzerland to the glamorous British court and the wilds of early North Carolina this sweeping historic drama, inspired by de Graffenried's own memoir and written by one of his descendants, follows the Baron as he works to carve a civilization out of the wilderness with his genteel bride by his side, who has left her fiance to start a new life with her true love.
