'Winn's study of the Indians who inhabited the Chattahoochee River Valley is aimed at the general reader and students. He covers the physical characteristics of the area in great detail and provides information on how Indian groups met their physical, social, and spiritual needs. 'Winn details what he terms the 'seasonal round' as the inhabitants, masters of the local environment, shifted to take advantage of abundant game, fish, and wild plants. Discussion of what the author calls the 'wilderness school' will interest those curious about firemaking, collection and use of wild plants, and manufacture of tools, weapons, and domestic needs. Also discussed are the major mound sites, their archaeology, and their probable function in the societies that erected them. 'With a pleasing narrative style . . . Winn discusses native peoples and their culture with respect.' --Kathryn E. Holland Braund, co-editor of Fields of Vision: Essays on the Travels of William Bartram, in the Alabama Review
