This comprehensive look at the first humans in Florida combines contemporary archaeology, the writings of early European explorers, and experiments to present a vivid history of the state's original inhabitants. Includes a photographic atlas of projectile points and pottery types as well as typical plant and animal remains uncovered at Florida archaeological sites.

The author replicated many primitive technologies during the writing of this book. He fashioned a prehistoric tool kit from stone, wood, bone, and shell, then used the implements to carve wood, twist palm fiber into twine and rope, make and decorate pottery, and weave fabric. The book shows detailed photos of these processes.

16-page color insert, 360 b&w photos, 159 line drawings

About the Author

Robin C. Brown grew up in Tampa and received his M.D. degree from Tulane University. He practiced medicine in Fort Myers for thirty-six years. A lifelong interest in the early history of Florida led to his first two Pineapple Press books: Florida's Fossils and Florida's First People. He wrote The Crafts of Florida's First People for children because so many fans asked him to.
