about

"Well researched and well written, and with a skillful combination of the techniques of ethnohistory and archaeology. . . . Though ten separate authors were involved in this book, one detects no unevenness in the presentations."--"American Indian Quarterly"
"An outstanding book. The reader is brought up to date concerning recent research on such tribes as the Calusas, Tocobagas, Western Timucua, Guales, and early Seminoles."--"Tampa Bay History"
"A scholarly intertwining of history, ethnography, and archaeology."--"Choice"
"A splendid volume] that reflects both scholarship and good writing."--"Georgia Librarian"
"Tacachale"--a Timucuan word that means "to light a new fire"--refers to an Indian ritual that the Timucuans used to minimize impending change and maintain their way of life. In these essays it symbolizes the efforts of the aborigines of Florida and southeastern Georgia to deal with the destruction of their cultures during the period of European colonization.
