The Catawba Nation by Charles M Hudson( Book )

11 editions published between 1965 and 1979 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based both on library research and field research, the author's effort has been to reconstruct the history of the Catawba Indians, concentrating on their external relations from prehistoric times up to the present, and to examine the manner in which this history is remembered and socially codified in the present by both whites and Catawba Indians. Two short periods of field work, August to September of 1962 and June to October of 1963, were a mixture of directed interviewing and participant-observation with the object of learning how the Catawbas and their white neighbors thought of themselves in terms of their past. It is reported, for example, that the majority of the Catawbas are Mormons, that they work in local textile mills, and that they experience social conflict both with outsiders and among themselves due to increasing assimilation. Among the historical facts, it is noted that they divided their assets and terminated their relationship with the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1962; that the last speaker of the Catawba language died in the person of their last chief; and that existing and future marriages between Indians and whites were legalized in South Carolina in April of 1960.

The Juan Pardo expeditions : exploration of the Carolinas and Tennessee, 1566-1568 by Charles M Hudson( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume successfully mines the Pardo documents to reveal a wealth of information pertaining to Pardo's routes, his encounters and interactions with native peoples, the social, hierarchical, and political structures of the Indians, and clues to the ethnic identities of Indians known previously only through archaeology. The new afterword reveals recent archaeological evidence of Pardo's Fort San Juan - the earliest site of sustained interaction between Europeans and Indians in interior North America - demonstrating the accuracy of Hudson's route reconstructions."--Jacket

Conversations with the high priest of Coosa by Charles M Hudson( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cast as a series of conversations between Domingo de la Anunciacion, a real-life Spanish priest who traveled to the Coosa chiefdom around 1559, and the Raven, a fictional tribal elder, Conversations with the High Priest of Coosa attempts to reconstruct the worldview of the Indians of the late prehistoric Southeast. Mediating the exchange between the two men is Teresa, a character modeled on a Coosa woman captured some twenty years earlier by the Hernando de Soto expedition and taken to Mexico, where she learned Spanish and became a Christian convert." "Through story and legend, the Raven teaches Anunciacion about the rituals, traditions, and culture of the Coosa. He tells of how the Coosa world came to be and recounts tales of the birds and animals - real and mythical - that share that world. From these engaging conversations emerges a fascinating glimpse inside the Coosa belief system and an enhanced understanding of the native people who inhabited the ancient South."--Jacket
Light on the path : the anthropology and history of the southeastern Indians by Robbie Franklyn Ethridge( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: A seamless social history of the native peoples of the American South, bridging prehistory and history. The past 20 years have witnessed a change in the study of the prehistory and history of the native peoples of the American South. This paradigm shift is the bridging of prehistory and history to fashion a seamless social history that includes not only the 16th-century Late Mississippian period and the 18th-century colonial period but also the largely forgotten--and critically important--century in between. The shift is in part methodological, for it involves combining methods from anthropology, history, and archaeology. It is also conceptual and theoretical, employing historical and archaeological data to reconstruct broad patterns of history--not just political history with Native Americans as a backdrop, nor simply an archaeology with added historical specificity, but a true social history of the Southeastern Indians, spanning their entire existence in the American South. The scholarship underlying this shift comes from many directions, but much of the groundwork can be attributed to Charles Hudson. The papers in this volume were contributed by Hudson's colleagues and former students (many now leading scholars themselves) in his honor. The assumption links these papers is that of a historical transformation between Mississippian societies and the Indian societies of the historic era that requires explanation and critical analysis. In all of the chapters, the legacy of Hudson's work is evident. Anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians are storming the bridge that connects prehistory and history in a manner unimaginable 20 years ago._ While there remains much work to do on the path toward understanding this transformation and constructing a complete social history of the Southeastern Indians, the work of Charles Hudson and his colleagues have shown the way

The packhorseman by Charles M Hudson( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April 1735, twenty-year-old William MacGregor, possessing little more than a bottle of Scotch whiskey and a set of Shakespeares plays, arrives in Charles Town, South Carolina, to make his fortune in the New World. The Scottish Highlands, while dear to his heart, were in steep economic decline and hopelessly entangled in dangerous political intrigue. With an uncle in Carolina, the long ocean voyage seemed his best chance for a new start. He soon discovers that the Jacobite politics of Scotland extend to Carolina, and when his mouth gets him in trouble with the Charles Town locals, dimming his employment opportunities, he seizes the one option still open for him and takes a job as a frontier packhorseman
The Cow-hunter : a novel by Charles M Hudson( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vividly set in the rich pluralistic culture and primeval landscape of colonial South Carolina, this historical novel brings to life, and back into our memory, the birth of free-range cattle herding that would later come to be associated exclusively with the American West. Drawing on his accomplished career as a leading scholar of the anthropology and history of the early South, Charles Hudson weaves a compelling tale of adventure and love in the colorful tapestry of Charles Town taverns, backcountry trails, pinewoods cattle ranges, hidden villages of remnant native peoples, river highways, rice plantations and more. Hudson' narrative revolves around William MacGregor, a young Scottish immigrant trying to establish himself in the New World. A lover of philosophy and Shakespeare, William is penniless, which leads him to take work as a cow-hunter (colonial cowboy) for a pinder (colonial rancher) of a cowpen (colonial ranch) in the Carolina backcountry. The pinder, an older man with three daughters, sees his world unraveling as he ages. The parallel to King Lear does not escape William, who gets caught up in the family drama as he falls in love with the pinder's youngest daughter. Except for the boss of his crew, who is the pinder's son-in-law, William's fellow cow-hunters are slaves: an old Indian captured in Spanish Florida, a Fulani captured in Africa, and two brothers, half-Indian and half-African, who were born into slavery in the New World. A rogue bull adds a chilling element of danger and the romance is complicated by a rivalry with a wealthy rice planter's son. William struggles to salvage something from the increasingly disastrous situation, and the King Lear — like dissolution of the cowpen proceeds apace as the story heads toward its conclusion
