9780807115527: A New Andalucia and a Way to the Orient: The American Southeast During the Sixteenth Century

Paul E. Hoffman's groundbreaking book focuses on a neglected area of colonial history -- southeastern North America during the sixteenth-century. Hoffman describes expeditions to the region, efforts at colonization, and rivalries between the French, Spanish, and English. He reveals the ways in which the explorers' expectations -- fueled by legends -- crumbled in the face of difficulties encountered along the southeastern coast. The first book to link the earliest voyages with the explorations of the sixteenth century and the settlement of later colonies, Hoffman's work is an important reassessment of southern colonial history.

About the Author:

Paul E. Hoffman, professor of history at Louisiana State University, is the author or co-author of six books on colonial Latin American history, including Florida's Frontiers, winner of the Gulf South Historical Association Book Award, and The Last Voyage of El Nuevo Constante: The Wreck and Recovery of an Eighteenth-Century Spanish Ship off the Louisiana Coast. He lives in Baton Rouge.

Review:

"In tying together the initial voyages of discovery and the creation of legends, Spanish settlement efforts, diplomatic treaties, the publication of books on geography and exploration, the sharing of information by the English and the French, and the follow-up voyages, Hoffman tells a fascinating story."
