"Paints a vivid portrait of Creek society and culture in the early nineteenth century. . . . Well-written, free from jargon, and accessible to readers who are not experts in the field. Consequently, Ethridge's examination of the Creek world will be of considerable value for anyone interested in Indian ethnohistory or the history of the American south." -- "Journal of Southern History"
Ethridge forges an original approach to writing American Indian history. . . . Remarkable. Every library should own this book, if only for her fourteen minutely detailed maps of Creek towns.--NC Historical Review
