Willoughbyland - England'apos;s Lost Colony

R$69,89

Descrição

At the beginning of the 1650s, England was in ruins - wrecked by plague and civil war. Yet shimmering on the horizon was a vision of paradise: Willoughbyland.Ever since Sir Walter Ralegh set out in 1595 to claim the 'apos;Beautiful Empire of Guiana'apos; for the English crown - and to find the legendary city of El Dorado - adventurers had struggled against the fierce jungle of the Wild Coast in search of their fortune.Now, in the lush landscape between the great Amazon and Orinoco rivers, a group of Cavaliers, expelled by Oliver Cromwell, had established a new colony named after its founder - Sir Francis Willoughby.This is the untold story of Willoughbyland'apos;s spectacular rise and fall, set at a pivotal moment in British and world history. Here are the indigenous 'apos;Indian kings'apos; and their people, both friend and foe to the new arrivals. Here is Fifth Baron Willoughby himself, like his colony a mass of contradictory extremes. And here is Aphra Behn - later one of the most successful dramatists of the Restoration stage - sent to spy on a man with whom she will fall in love, transforming the fate of this entire enterprise.In the blissfully warm and fragrant air, these adventurers and exiles found a land of unimaginable freedom and natural beauty. Yet, as planters and traders followed explorers, and mercenaries and soldiers followed political dissidents, it would become a place of terror and cruelty, of sugar and slavery. As Matthew Parker reveals, the history of Willoughbyland is a microcosm of the history of empire, its heady attractions and fatal dangers.
