"The Only Land They Knew" - "An excellent survey of the Native American experience in the southern U.S. from the Spanish entrada until the Jacksonian removal ...Wright presents the native peoples as they were, and the contributions which they made to America without an excessive spilling of prose tears over the fact they were often victimized...May be enjoyed by any reader who has an interest in an outstanding treatment in one volume of this complex subject."" - 'Choice'. "Wright's narrative, based upon exacting research, has filled a giant lacuna in our knowledge of the American past." - Dee Brown, author of "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee". "An excellent one-volume survey of aboriginal presence in the United States South. It is a well-written view of the tides of changes that flowed over the Indian peoples in the region as successive colonizers left their imprint on the land and the inhabitants." - 'American Indian Culture and Research Journal'. In this unsurpassed history of the Native peoples of the southern United States, J. Leitch Wright Jr. describes Native lives, customs, and encounters with Europeans and Africans from late prehistory through the nineteenth century. J. Leitch Wright Jr. was a professor of history at Florida State University and the author of "Creeks and Seminoles: The Destruction and Regeneration of the Muscogulge People (Nebraska 1986)". James H. Merrell is a professor of history at Northwestern University.
