In this book, Timothy Silver traces the effects of English settlement on South Atlantic ecology, showing how all three cultures--Indian, European, and African--interacted with and were, in turn, affected by, their changing environment. In assessing such ecological changes, Silver pays particular attention to regional variations, explaining how local geography and settlement patterns influenced the environment. And while his focus is the English South, Silver also shows us how economic and ecological developments in Europe, the Caribbean, and elsewhere frequently dictated how South Atlantic colonists used their land. Consequently, his book provides an engaging and detailed look at the complex relationships among humans, plants, and animals in a unique and diverse region of North America.

Book Description:
Analysis of the effects of English settlement on South Atlantic ecology reveals how three cultures--Indian, European and African--all interacted with and were, in turn, affected by, their changing environment.
Review:
"...thoroughly engrossing....Timothy Silver offers a wealth of fascinating information about the topography and the flora and fauna of the region east of the Appalachians, south of Pennsylvania, and north of the Okefenokee Swamp....rewarding reading." American Ethnologist

"Simply by assessing the ecological implications of European and Indian assumptions and practices concerning the fur trade, or describing Euro-African agricultural practices, Silver brings alive the ecologist's perception of nature as a complex web of interactions." Choice

"...original scholarship....Silver shows us how such history should be written." John Phillip Reid, Pacific Historical Review

"...this fine study serves not only as an agenda for research, but as a pioneering view of the early history of the American experience with nature in North America." Mart A. Stewart, The Americas
