The De Soto Chronicles. The Expedition of Hernando De Soto to North America in 1539-1543

Tuscaloosa and London: University of Alabama Press, 1993.

Hardcover. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Two-volume set in as-new condition. Publisher's description: "The De Soto expedition was the first major encounter of Europeans with North American Indians in the eastern half of the United States. De Soto and his army of over 600 men, including 200 cavalry, spent four years traveling through what is now Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. For anthropologists, archaeologists, and historians the surviving De Soto chronicles are valued for the unique ethnological information they contain. These documents, available here in a two volume set, are the only detailed eyewitness records of the most advanced native civilization in North America-the Mississippian culture-a culture that vanished in the wake of European contact."
