We can imagine it this way: a small group of scholars at Durham House along with pilots and sailors, perhaps a wizard with his black cap and white beard, and, at the center, the dashing Ralegh in his black and pearls. Great maps are spread across wooden tables beside diaries, logs, and reports in many languages. As the men peer into the blank spaces at the edges of the parchments, they slowly add lines. Coasts begin to take shape. America is emerging out of legend into facts. Ralegh leads the way. He pushes forward into the blank spaces, bringng his own lore and legends with him. Includes an Index.
