Publishers Description: Ghost Colonies brings to light the fascinating but rarely told stories of history's lost colonies. Unlike many of the colonial 'success stories' from lands like America, Australia, Canada and South Africa, the ghost colonies were promised lands that failed entirely to live up to their promise. They failed through ignorance, naivety, disease, internal fighting, attacks by native peoples or by opposing powers - or simply because they were political pawns, callously abandoned by their imperial masters. This compelling mix of adventure, mystery, tragedy, exploration and discovery reveals a fascinating but largely forgotten area of history.
