Based on the compelling mystery of the Lost Colony at Roanoke Island, the tone poem depicts the voyage of the English settlers across the Atlantic, the arrival in the "new world," the return of the ship to England to obtain more supplies, the battle of the colonists with the native population, and the mysterious disappearance of the settlers discovered when the ship returned. All that remained were their blue-eyed descendants, now members of the native tribe.
