"An outstanding book. The reader is brought up to date concerning recent research on such tribes as the Calusas, Tocobagas, Western Timucua, Guales, and early Seminoles."--Tampa Bay History
"A scholarly intertwining of history, ethnography, and archaeology."--Choice
"A splendid [volume] that reflects both scholarship and good writing."--Georgia Librarian
Tacachale--a Timucuan word that means "to light a new fire"--refers to an Indian ritual that the Timucuans used to minimize impending change and maintain their way of life. In these essays it symbolizes the efforts of the aborigines of Florida and southeastern Georgia to deal with the destruction of their cultures during the period of European colonization.
