Covering everything from Acadians to YellowFever, Bernard Romans exhaustively addressed daily life in Florida and minutelydescribed its natural features-but he also did much more. He was copious inconveying the manners and customs of the native Chickasaw, Choctaw, and CreekIndians, including, despite their bad traits, one common outstanding virtue:hospitality. Romans also notes the habits and character of the colonists andcomments on the prevalence of drinking. By focusing his attention on even themost minute detail, Romans has given us a fascinating, true account of earlyFlorida.According to the Library of Congress, the variety of natural,aboriginal, historic, and miscellaneous information which [the book]graphically gives is far more original than a great many pioneerhistories. Originally published in 1775, this rare work was firstreprinted by Pelican in 1961.
