Riassunto: By the author of the bestselling NATHANIEL'S NUTMEG In April 1586, Queen Elizabeth I acquired a new and exotic title. A tribe of Native Americans had made her their "Weroanza" - Big Chief. The news was received with great joy, both by the Queen and her favourite, Sir Walter Raleigh. His first American expedition had brought back a captive, Manteo, whose tattooed face had enthralled Elizabethan London. Now Manteo was returned to his homeland as a feudal lord. It was a strange story that was to have an even more extraordinary twist. Raleigh's gamble would result in the first English settlement in the New World, but it would also lead to a riddle whose solution for many years lay hidden in the forests of Virginia.
