The story of the "lost colony" of North Carolina where an entire population of English settlers disappeared without a trace over 400 years ago, is told through the experiences of the English artist John White and the young Indian hunter Wanchese. Their mutual curiosity draws them together, but struggle as they will to become brothers, the eventual clash of their cultures causes an inevitable confrontation--and an omen for the future of white men and red.
