View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Covering everything from Acadians to Yellow
Fever, Bernard Romans exhaustively addressed daily life in Florida and minutely
described its natural features-but he also did much more. He was copious in
conveying the manners and customs of the native Chickasaw, Choctaw, and Creek
Indians, including, despite their bad traits, one common outstanding virtue:
hospitality. Romans also notes the habits and character of the colonists and
comments on the prevalence of drinking. By focusing his attention on even the
most minute detail, Romans has given us a fascinating, true account of early
Florida.
According to the Library of Congress, the variety of natural,
aboriginal, historic, and miscellaneous information which [the book]
graphically gives is far more original than a great many pioneer
histories. Originally published in 1775, this rare work was first
reprinted by Pelican in 1961.

About the Author:

Bernard Romans was sent by the British government to America in 1755 as a civil engineer. He has been called a universal genius, distinguished not only as an engineer, but also as a surveyor, botanist, writer, and cartographer. His great and extensive map of the Floridas is one of the finest pieces of cartography of the region.

Review:

"Students of history, ecology, and anthropology will appreciate this book for the insights it provides into the perceptions of a learned individual caught up in the development of a young nation."Choice
