New York: Owl Books/Henry Holt. Very Good. 2002. First Paperback Edition. Paperback. 9780805052145 . Used in wraps. Previous owner's name blacked out on the first page; otherwise a clean and tight copy. Light rubbing to the covers, smudging to the page edges. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 300 pages; Here is the true story of how the first European colony in the New World was lost to history, then found again three hundred years later. Englands first attempt at colonizing the New World was not at Roanoke or Jamestown but on a mostly frozen, pocket-sized island in the Canadian Arctic. Queen Elizabeth I called that place Meta Incognitathe Unknown Shore. Backed by Elizabeth I and her key advisors, including the legendary spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham and the shadowy Dr. John Dee, the erstwhile pirate Sir Martin Frobisher set out three times across the North Atlantic, in the process leading what is still the largest Arctic expedition in history. In this brilliantly conceived dual narrative, Ruby interweaves Frobishers saga with that of the nineteenth-century American Charles Francis Hall, whose explorations of this same landscape enabled him to hear the oral history of the Inuit, passed down through generations. It was these stories that unlocked the mystery of Frobishers lost colony. ., Owl Books/Henry Holt, 2002

Here is the true story of how the first European colony in the New World was lost to history, then found again three hundred years later. England's first attempt at colonizing the New World was not at Roanoke or Jamestown but on a mostly frozen, pocket-sized island in the Canadian Arctic. Queen Elizabeth I called that place Meta Incognita -- the Unknown Shore. Backed by Elizabeth I and her key advisors, including the legendary spymaster Sir Francis Walsingham and the shadowy Dr. John Dee, the erstwhile pirate Sir Martin Frobisher set out three times across the North Atlantic, in the process leading what is still the largest Arctic expedition in history. In this brilliantly conceived dual narrative, Ruby interweaves Frobisher's saga with that of the nineteenth-century American Charles Francis Hall, whose explorations of this same landscape enabled him to hear the oral history of the Inuit, passed down through generations. It was these stories that unlocked the mystery of Frobisher's lost colony. 16th century,19th century,americas,arctic,arctic and antarctica,biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,canada Travel, Holt Paperbacks
