John White, the colony’s leader, embarks on a supply mission, only to find that the settlers are gone when he returns. “A Secret Token” was the only clue left carved into the tree. These colonists were never found by Europeans or whites. No one ever knew what happened to the lost colony of Roanoke. It’s been more than 400 years since people are still searching for answers. American historians were left with nothing but false stories, fantasies, and dead ends. Andrew Lawler’s encounter with a British archaeologist led him to answers on one of the greatest historical mysteries in American history. He is also led by several researchers and characters who became obsessed and intent on finding out what happened to the lost colony.

The book is both engaging and intriguing, with The Washington Post calling it “crazy fun” and “surprisingly fresh and powerful.” The Wall Street Journal also considers it “the most authoritative account of the lost colony yet.” If not, this book will surely shed some light on what happened to the missing colonists. “Mr Lawler is an unabashed leader in this treacherous field,” says The Economist. “His willingness to follow any lead, no matter how offbeat, and enthusiasm for the journey as much as the destination make The Secret Token lively and compelling read,” added The Economist. While Kirkus, the American book review magazine, says: “An unsolved mystery reveals violent political and economic rivalries and horrific personal struggles in this entertaining historical adventure”.
