The eighth volume in the Civilization of the American Indian Series. Each of the five tribes, the Choctaws, Chickasaws, Creeks, Cherokees and Seminoles are presented in depth with their backgrounds, cultures, laws and customs, relations with other tribes and much more. The author brings to light the singular effect the westward movement of Indians in the nineteenth century had in the cultivation and settlement of the Trans-Mississippi regions.
