This edition not only again makes available a classic volume in ethnohistory, but also provides a perceptive assessment of the influence of Hickerson's book since it first appeared in 1970. The seventeen-page critical review and bibliographical supplement, as well as the new maps and illustrations, show the methodological refinement and new questions addressed in ethnohistorical studies over the last several decades when Hickerson's pioneering efforts served both as model and controversial stimulus to other scholars to probe more deeply into the documentary records and seek fuller understanding of them. Includes a special, full color, fold-out map, "Indian Villages and Tribal Distribution c. 1768."
