The author, Alan Briceland " challenges the historical interpretation of early southern colonial expansion westward, which has been based on four recorded 17th century explorations of the interior undertaken by Virginians. The accounts of Edward Bland (1650), John Lederer (1670), Thomas Batts and Robert Fallam (1671), and James Needham and Gabriel Arthur (1673) are so cryptic in their descriptions that they have given rise to various interpretations of the routes traveled and the locations of Indian villages visited. This book examines anew these explorations and the motives that produced them." An excellent read and chocked full of interesting information that one just might not know about. The spine is tight and straight. The dust jacket does have a small tear at the top of the jacket near the spine and some light rubbing on the corners, not badly. This price is one of the best out there for this hard to locate book. Add this one to your collection before it gets away. *2BC5
