"The disappearance of the infant Virginia Dare, the first English child born on American soil, has dogged historians for more than four centuries. All we know is that she was born, baptized, and abandoned, within a two-week perioed, on the shores of the Outer Banks. Fiction writers, poets, politicians, and archeologists have all taken stabs at solving the mystery. What became of Virginia Dare and the Lost Colong? Inspired by legends, hoaxes, and reports of blue-eyed Indians, author Marjorie Hudson leaves behind the dusty tomes of the library and begins her quest to find an answer."
