A fascinating account of a variant experience of an institution too often viewed from a single perspective."--"Booklist"
"Rivers takes a very close look at slave society from various angles, as he evaluates not only slave life but the interaction of whites, blacks, and Indians. . . . Makes for a rich and multi-layered history."--"Southern Historian"
"Shows how slavery differed dramatically in different regions of the state and how, in fact, it evolved over the years in those areas."--"Tallahassee Democrat"
"Addresses how Florida s history and geography produced conditions unlike those elsewhere in the American South."--"Journal of Southern History"
