Countless film and television adaptations have portrayed Defoe's fictional heroine as a 'tart with a heart' on the rowdy streets of Georgian London. This accessible and entertaining study debunks the myth, pointing out that the novel is actually set in the previous, far more troubled 17th century. In search of Moll's real-life prototypes, it takes the reader from Jacobean England to Jamestown, Virginia, and from the English Civil War to the struggles of the Powhatan Indians.
