Knight of the Purple Ribbon: Baron de Graffenried's Colonial Adventures Kindle Edition
Top Customer Reviews
When he is disinherited at a family gathering, he decides to become his own man, forgoing his father's generous allowance and setting sail to America to make his own life and fortune. He picks up a new wife on the way, then overcomes a multitude of challenges to establish New Bern.
This is a well-researched and detailed portrait of a tumultuous time in history , and the author has cleverly reflected the writing style of the Eighteenth Century, lending authenticity to a tale that is based on fact. This era and the emigration of a wide variety of people to the New World is something that fascinates me, and I enjoyed looking at it from the Switzer/German Protestant viewpoint; even more so as it is based on the author's ancestral history, and she is right to be so proud of him.
