"The Island that Disappeared tells, for the first time, the story of the passengers aboard the Mayflower's sister ship (the Seaflower) who in 1630 founded a rival Puritan colony on an isolated Caribbean island called Providence--so small it doesn't appear on most maps. Chaos ensued, and the great experiment failed. One-hundred years later the disaster repeated itself. Traveling to the island today, Tom Feiling finds a new mix of Puritans and pirates that make Providence a symbol of how the Western world took shape."--Provided by publisher.

Opinion

From Library Staff

The wild history of a Caribbean island of many names. An island of puritan pilgrims turned pirates, slaves turned freedom fighters, and a rotation of rule by Spanish and English speaking nations. Suggested by Isaac H.
