Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides a much needed summary of the excavations at several important but poorly documented mound sites and nicely synthesizes this data into a phase-by-phase history of chiefdom development in the Chattahoochee Valley. At the same time, the authors present a provocative model for the development and spread of Mississippian societies through the Southeast"-- Thomas J. Pluckhahn, University of Oklahoma, co-editor of Light on the Path:  The Anthropology and History of the Southeastern Indians.
 


"This is a significant book. It offers thoughtful arguments on important issues, such as the initial Mississippian migration to the region. It is well organized, cogently written, and presents important new archaeological data. . . . It should be read by all interested in Mississippian political structure."
—American Anthropologist

Very detailed and a very fine book. I have been by some of these mounds many times. The creeks listed I have fished in.
