About the Author
Julia A. King is an associate professor of anthropology at St. Mary's College of Maryland, where she coordinates the Museum Studies Program and directs the SlackWater Center, a consortium devoted to exploring, documenting, and interpreting the changing landscapes of Chesapeake communities. She is also coeditor, with Dennis B. Blanton, of Indian and European Contact in Context: The Mid-Atlantic Region.
As a student of Southern Maryland history, I found that the book added to a lot of the missing pieces in my collection. Ms. King's book is well written and indeed covers a whole area that has been missing. I had worked as a re-enactor at St. Mary's City for 13 years and had lived most of what she has described. For a work of science, it is easily read and her experience in teaching what she preaches is found early on. You cannot go wrong if you are a history lover.
