Powhatan's Mantle

Indians in the Colonial Southeast

by Peter H Wood

"The reader is treated to some refreshingly different perspectives. . . . the book is flawless in terms of its presentation."—Southeastern Archaeology

"Thought-provoking and stimulating. . . . an important work that enhances one's knowledge of the colonial southeastern Indians."—North Carolina Historical Review

"For any course aimed at covering either southeastern Indians or southeastern colonial history in any real depth, it should be required reading."—Georgia Historical Quarterly

Twelve original essays highlight new approaches and current work by leading historians, anthropologists, and archaeologists. Contributors are Helen Hornbeck Tanner; Amy Turner Bushnell; Daniel Usner, Jr.; Stephen Potter; Patricia Galloway; James Merrell; Martha McCartney; Marvin Smith; Vernon James Knight, Jr.; and the editors, Peter Wood; Gregory A. Waselkov; and M. Thomas Hatley, who also provided a preface and introductions to the book's three thematic sections (Geography and Population, Politics and Economics, Symbols and Society). Combining ethnohistory, archaeology, anthropology, cartography, and demography, Powhatan’s Mantle is a provocative introduction to the dramatically changing world of southeastern Indians during the colonial era.

Peter Wood teaches history at Duke University and is the author of Black Majority (1974). Gregory Waselkov, an expert in Indian archaeology, is an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of South Alabama. M. Thomas Hatley, an environmental historian, is executive director of the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development in New York.
