ONE OF HISTORY'S GREATEST UNTOLD STORIES
A.D. 1170--Embittered by the tyranny of the English monarchy, Welsh prince Madoc sailed with ships of settlers across the Western Ocean in search of a new home. Three centuries before Columbus, he landed on the southern coast of North America and there founded a colony of free Welsh in fertile but alien terrain. As they sought to carve out a settlement, they encountered tribes of native Americans--and shared their struggle to survive in a wild land.
In MADOC, Pat Winter weaves a richly imagined historical saga, a vast, sweeping tapestry of the men and women who dared the unknown. Inspired by research into a little-known chapter of history, MADOC glows vividly through the centuries to our own time.
