Out of print for years after thousands of copies were sold, The World of the Southern Indians, an important resource for young readers, is now available again.
More Native Americans lived in the South than in any other section of the country. The World of the Southern Indians is a fascinating account of the South’s first people. Virginia Pounds Brown and Laurella Owens’s collaborative effort synthesizes much of the wide-ranging historical information on Southern tribes. It provides the story of the Native Americans from prehistoric times to the present, focusing on the five great tribes: Choctaws, Chickasaws, Cherokees, Creeks, and Seminoles. Also included is a dictionary of place names of Indian origin and a chronology of important dates. The book is richly illustrated by Nathan H. Glick, nationally known for his authentic renderings of Indian life.
The book’s point of view is one of appreciation for the Indians’ values. General readers, students, and others will find this book an engrossing story.
“This is an excellent selection for school and public libraries.” —Georgia Librarian
