Actually reread this book in relationship to a current research project. By far it remains a must-read book for anyone interested in the colonization of the gulf coast south in the 17th and 18th century. My own interest in indigenous women and their role in this economy begins with Usner's research. Really well-written and great details--fascinating stories.
