Review Text

Last in the trilogy of ?? ??den and Men of ??, this continues the story of the North Carolina plantations, their attempts to achieve some sort of active cooperation from the Lords of Trade and Plantations, to establish well rooted communities, and particularly to ward off pirates destroying their trade. Roger Main-waring and Anne Bonney again - Roger working for the colony, Anne determined to avenge her youth there and ra??e all plantations as pirate queen, but their crossing careers are incidental to the Fountaine settlement of artisans and farmers. Robert, ??Euguenot refugee and weaver, is intent only on protecting his amnesic wife and practicising his religion. His daughter Gabrielle is, however, concerned by the worries of Indian raids, new customs, and internal dissension which Robert ignores. Her help comes from ??Moray, Scots refugee, who established his own plantation near the Fountaine's. The pirates capture Fountaine, Moray saves him, and Gabrielle defies her father, is firm about staying on the new land, and marries Moray. Historical-political-thesis-regional novel, substantial and substantiated. (Kirkus Reviews)
