In the seven book series which began with Raleigh's Eden and now includes Men of Albemarle, Lusty Wind for Carolina, Toil of the Brave and Roanoke Hundred, she has purposed to tell the story of the 200 years' history of the colony and nascent state, from first settlement to North Carolina's ratification of the Constitution." This novel begins in August of 1651 and encompasses the impact that the Cromwellian period in England had on the New World.; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
