Read full description of the books:



There are more myths & legends about this bit of history than actual knowledge, but this book from 1970 does a good job of outlining what is myth and what is actually known as of the writing of the book. The myths he is talking about are those created by the white English speaking people after the area was settled by Americans, so maybe 300 years after the collapse of the last organized society of the descendants of the mound builders. It appears he tried to probe the oral history of the Cherokee, Creek, and related tribes, but got nowhere. So he relied on the writings and research in English of the 19th & 20th century as his main sources. Oh well. Parts of it are quite amusing, and I can use the info to plot some adventure vacations. I will recommend this book to a number of history buff friends. If he had been able, or inclined to probe French or Spanish sources, he would have gotten a very different, certainly broader perspective.
