What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Hudson makes a truly unique and detailed contribution to our understanding of the push for infrastructure development in the American South during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and of how this development affected the lives of Creek Indians, Africans, and Americans. Only in a few instances have I seen such a successful integration of Indian and American history.—Robbie Ethridge, McMullan Associate Professor of Southern Studies, University of Mississippi
