“In the first synthesis of its kind, Barnett brings together many strands of data and scholarship to chronicle the changes and history of Mississippi’s indigenous inhabitants, and Mississippi history is expanded by some 14,000 years. In highly readable prose, Barnett integrates the narrative of Indian and Euro-American encounters into Mississippi and American history while also highlighting the historical experiences of the various Indians who once lived in the state and their historic cultural lives. The book will go far in bringing Mississippi’s Indians, and indeed Indian people in general, into the public’s historical consciousness.”
―Robbie Ethridge, author of From Chicaza to Chickasaw: The European Invasion and the Transformation of the Mississippian World, 1540-1715
“This is a beautiful book, extensively researched and very well written. Barnett has an enviable ability to bring together information from a wide variety of sources without losing the engaging narrative style that makes this volume highly readable. It is doubtful whether anyone could have done a better job of constructing a cohesive historical narrative from the many disparate players, places, and events that crowded the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries in the American Southeast. A book of this kind focusing on the Magnolia State is a welcome addition to the corpus of work available to scholars, teachers, and the general public.”
―Evan Peacock, author of Mississippi Archaeology Q & A
