" . . . A 'must have' for the reference shelf and a thought provoking study for a growing number of people who are interested in finding out all they can about the Taino and other indigenous peoples of the Caribbean, and not just a book for Caribbean linguists, archaeologists, and historians."
H-NET BOOK REVIEW
"The meat of the book is its linguistic analysis supporting a model of the colonization of the Antilles, along with an ethnohistorical analysis, both of which present fresh material and ideas unavailable elsewhere and which correct errors that are still in the literature."
