Laboring in the fields of the Lord : Spanish missions and Southeastern Indians by Jerald T Milanich( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the great secrets of American history, more than 150 Spanish mission churches once dotted the landscape between modern Miami and the Chesapeake Bay. Built between the 1560s and 1760s, the missions were concentrated in what is now northern Florida and southern Georgia, but until recently their existence - and their influence on the region's native groups - has remained virtually undetected. Their wood and thatch buildings burned or rotted away, and sweeping epidemics gradually wiped out the entire populations of the Timucua, Guale, and Apalachee Indians." "Drawing upon archaeological and historical research conducted during the last twenty years, archaeologist Jerald T. Milanich contends that the southeastern mission system, conceived as a way to save souls while converting a potentially hostile population into an essential labor force, was central to the Spanish colonial enterprise."--Jacket

Florida's Indians from ancient times to the present by Jerald T Milanich( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Florida's Indians tells the story of the native societies that have lived in Florida for twelve millennia, from the early hunters at the end of the Ice Age to the modern Seminole, Miccosukee, and Creek Indians. When the first Indians arrived in what is now Florida, they wrested their livelihood from a land far different from the modern countryside, one that was cooler, drier, and almost twice the size. Thousands of years later European explorers encountered literally hundreds of different Indian groups living in every part of the state. (Today every Florida country contains an Indian archaeological site.) The arrival of colonists brought the native peoples a new world and great changes took place - by the mid-1700s, through warfare, slave raids, and especially epidemics, the population was almost annihilated. Other Indians soon moved into the state, including Creeks from Georgia and Alabama, who were the ancestors of the modern Seminole and Miccosukee Indians. Written for a general audience, this book is lavishly illustrated with full-color drawings and photographs

Archaeology of Precolumbian Florida by Jerald T Milanich( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milanich begins with an overview of the history of archaeology in Florida. He then describes the earliest aboriginal cultures: the Paleoindians and the people of the Archaic period. The later, regional cultures (Weeden Island, Fort Walton, Glades, Caloosahatchee, and many others) are correlated with geographical and environmental regions and then compared to provide insights about the nature of chiefdom societies, the effects of wetlands on precolumbian settlement systems, and the environmental history of the state. Maps and illustrations document this history of archaeological research in Florida and of the sites and artifacts (including spectacular Weeden Island pottery vessels and Belle Glade wooden carvings) left behind by the precolumbian people

A remarkable curiosity : dispatches from a New York City journalist's 1873 railroad trip across the American West by Amos J Cummings( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1873, Amos Jay Cummings, a decorated Civil War veteran and journalist for the New York Sun newspaper, set out on a westward journey aboard the newly completed transcontinental railroad. For some time, miners, settlers, and entrepreneurs had already been heading west to make their fortunes, and Cummings made the trip in part to see what all the fuss was about. During his six-month expedition from Kansas to California, Cummings sent extraordinary and engaging accounts of the American West back to his readers in New York." "Collected in this volume for the first time are Cummings's portraits of a land and its assortment of characters unlike anything back East. Characters like Pedro Armijo, the New Mexican sheep tycoon who took Denver by storm, and more prominently the Mormon prophet Brigham Young and one of his wives, Ann Eliza Young, who was filing for divorce at the time of Cummings's arrival."--Jacket

La Florida : five hundred years of Hispanic presence( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Commemorating Juan Ponce de León's landfall on the Atlantic coast of Florida, this ambitious volume explores five centuries of Hispanic presence in the New World peninsula, reflecting on the breadth and depth of encounters between the different lands and cultures. The contributors, leading experts in a range of fields, begin with an examination of the first and second Spanish periods. This was a time when La Florida was an elusive possession that the Spaniards were never able to completely secure; but Spanish influence would nonetheless leave an indelible mark on the land. In the second half of this volume, the essays highlight the Hispanic cultural legacy, politics, and history of modern Florida and expand on Florida's role as a modern transatlantic cross roads." -- Publisher's description
Frolicking bears, wet vultures, and other oddities : a New York City journalist in nineteenth-century Florida by Amos J Cummings( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1873, an adventurous New York City newspaper correspondent came to Florida and revealed the beautiful, the odd, and the dangerous to his cosmopolitan readership. "Ziska," a pioneer in human-interest reporting, stripped away the veneer of paradise for the droves of northerners being drawn to this southern wonderland and contrasted the Big Apple with the "land of flowers." No topic was too far removed or unimportant for his readers. Ziska covered rednecks and racists, murderers and mosquitoes, rich soils and poor souls. But who was Ziska?"
