    DescriptionA mysterious island - a boiling concoction of slavery, patriotism, religion, and greed (the story of America itself) - continues to be explored in this second book by Grady Klein. We return to 'The Lost Colony' for a tale of the Indian Wars. There are three new arrivals on the island: Birdy Snodgrass' beloved grandfather, a retired general who virulently despises everything Native American, and two war profiteers rigged out to perform the epic saga of Johnny Crevasse, Adventurer and Indian Slaughterer Extraordinaire (with all the merchandise that comes with it). With the trigger-happy general on the loose, tempers on 'The Lost Colony' are ready to explode! Skillfully crafted, richly illustrated in almost edible color, and always hilarious, 'The Lost Colony' may soon feel like home...and you might never want to leave.

    Review quote
    Review in August 2007 issue of BooklistIn "The Snodgrass Conspiracy" (2006), the first volume of the Lost Colony, Klein's insightful satire of white privilege and the pillaging of North America's preceding inhabitants, little Birdy Snodgrass dealt with slavery in the candy-colored world of the island in the Megabuk River. Now Birdy's evil father, who is both the island's governor and banker, addresses the "Injun problem" in cahoots with the mysterious Dr. Pepe Wong and an imposter claiming to be storied frontiersman Johnny Crevasse. Despite the pastel scenery, sometimes blotted with blood or crude song lyrics, this is neither children's story nor adolescent fantasy. Its ideal reader should have a solid grasp of nineteenth-century American history, including the mythology that inspired double-crossing native peoples and fostered bland naivete in politically weak frontier towns. Willingness to suspend PC tsk-tsking comes in handy, too, for both enjoying and being horrified by Klein's skewering re-enactment of the bad old days by figures who could have walked out of Saturday-morning TV cartoons.
