Discovering Florida : first-contact narratives from Spanish expeditions along the lower Gulf Coast by John E Worth( )

15 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Florida's lower gulf coast was a key region in the early European exploration of North America, with an extraordinary number of first-time interactions between Spaniards and Florida's indigenous cultures. Discovering Florida compiles all the major writings of Spanish explorers in the area between 1513 and 1566. Including transcriptions of the original Spanish documents as well as English translations, this volume presents--in their own words--the experiences and reactions of Spaniards who came to Florida with Juan Ponce de León, Pánfilo de Narváez, Hernando de Soto, and Pedro Menéndez de Avilés. These accounts, which have never before appeared together in print, provide an astonishing glimpse into a world of indigenous cultures that did not survive colonization. With introductions to the primary sources, extensive notes, and a historical overview of Spanish exploration in the region, this book offers an unprecedented firsthand view of La Florida in the earliest stages of European conquest"--Publisher description

The search for Mabila : the decisive battle between Hernando de Soto and Chief Tascalusa by Vernon J Knight( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most profound events in sixteenth-century North America was a ferocious battle between the Spanish army of Hernando de Soto and a larger force of Indian warriors under the leadership of a feared chieftain named Tascalusa. The site of this battle was a small fortified border town within an Indian province known as Mabila. Although the Indians were defeated, the battle was a decisive blow to Spanish plans for the conquest and settlement of what is now the southeastern United States. For in that battle, De Soto's army lost its baggage, including all proofs of the richness of
A History of Southeastern Indians in Cuba, 1513-1823 by John E Worth( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning in the early 16th centruy, small numbers of Florida Indians were sporadically transported to Cuba, which became a staging ground for many Florida expeditions. Cuban vessels also maintained trade with South Florida Indians between the 16th and early 19th centuries, involving indigenous groups and immigrant Creeks after the 1760s. And from 1704 to 1760, several hundred refugees from slave-raiding across South Florida fled on Cuban vessels and settled near Havana., followed in 1763 by 89 surviving mission Indians from St. Augustine. This paper explores the presence and survivorship of Southeastern Indians in Cuba, including avenues for future research

Light on the path : the anthropology and history of the southeastern Indians by Thomas J Pluckhahn( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 anthrop
