An early Spanish explorer’s account of American Indians.
This volume mines the Pardo documents to reveal a wealth of information pertaining to Pardo’s routes, his encounters and interactions with native peoples, the social, hierarchical, and political structures of the Indians, and clues to the ethnic identities of Indians known previously only through archaeology. The new afterword reveals recent archaeological evidence of Pardo’s Fort San Juan--the earliest site of sustained interaction between Europeans and Indians--demonstrating the accuracy of Hudson’s route reconstructions.

"This work will be especially welcomed by those seeking connections between archaeological 'phases' with unlikely names and historic Indian tribes of the Southeast. This is a bold interpretation based upon several rather thin lines of evidence. Its strength lies in the confidence one can place in Hoffman's translations and in the solid reputation Hudson has built reinterpreting the Southeast before as well as after Pardo's time."
