About the Author

Gregory A. Waselkov, an associate professor of anthropology at the University of South Alabama, is coeditor with Peter H. Wood and M. Thomas Hatley of Powhatan's Mantle: Indians in the Colonial Southeast (Nebraska 1989). Kathryn E. Holland Braund is an independent scholar and author of Deerskins and Duffels: The Creek Indian Trade with Anglo-America, 1865-1815 (Nebraska 1993).


"In this splendid volume, editors Gregory A. Waselkov and Kathryn E. Holland Braund pull together from a variety of published and archival sources Bartram's observations on Southeastern Indians, particularly the Creeks, Seminoles, and Cherokees... With this comprehensive compendium, the scope of Bartram's contributions to the fields of ethnohistory, anthropology, and historical archaeology can finally be understood." Mississippi Quarterly "An exemplary work... Waselkov and Braund have given scholars and fans of Bartram an invaluable source of his writing on the southeastern Indians and the tools and information with which to interpret and use his work." American Indian Culture and Research Journal "William Bartram continues to fascinate. The Quaker naturalist has been the subject of at least thirty publications since 1970. Historians and ethnologists will rank Braund and Waselkov's edition of Bartram's Indian-related materials among the most valuable... The editors complement each other, with Braund scouring depositories for manuscript material and Waselkov expertly analyzing Bartram's published works. Braund's concise biographical sketch of Bartram and Waselkov's essay on the eighteenth-century philosophical and scientific milieu are particularly valuable." Journal of Southern History "William Bartram on the Southeastern Indians is essential reading for anyone interested in the Native American Southeast, for few other writers of the eighteenth century can rival Bartram's detailed and relatively objective observations of the Cherokee, Creeks, and Seminoles. As a primary source, the book is an invaluable collection of information; as a scholarly work, it is unparalleled in its informed presentation and critical review of Bartram's writings." The North Carolina Historical Review
