"Williams succeeds admirably in calling our attention to southern Indians, informing his readers about their past, and challenging scholars for further research."
—Tennessee Historical Quarterly
"Well-written and well-researched . . . [these] essays are of high quality. The authors have consulted the major archival sources and have also done considerable fieldwork."
"This book is a significant addition to Native American literature, both for its ethnohistoric approach and its subject matter."
—North Carolina Historical Review
While much has been written on the archaeology, ethnography, and early history of southern Indians before 1840, most scholarly attention has shifted to Oklahoma and western Indians after that date. In studies of the New South or of Indian adaptation after the passage of the frontier, southeastern native peoples are rarely mentioned. This collection fills that void by providing an overview history of the culture and ethnic relations of the various Indian groups that managed to escape the 1830s removal and retain their ethnic identity to the present.
