Over two centuries the Calusa’s relations with the Spaniards changed from wariness and hostility to a solid alliance with them against other Europeans. During the final fifty years of Calusa existence as a culture, other Native Americans, acting as agents of European opportunists, literally pushed the Calusa into the sea.

This is an exhaustive and diverse set of documents which locates the Calusa in their rightful place of importance in North American ethnography.

…<b>Sarmiento's Travels in the U.S. in 1847</b>, Rockland, Michael Aaron
10 Rockland, Michael Aaron Sarmiento's Travels in the U.S. in 1847
New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 1970. 0691046026 / 9780691046020 First Edition – Second Printing Hardcover in Dust Jacket.
 
Bindings square and tight. Minimal handling wear. Text clean and bright. Dust jacket has minor shelf aging.

Domingo Faustino Sarmiento (1811-1888), Argentine educator, statesman, and writer, self-educated after the model of Benjamin Franklin, was "not a man but a nation," in the words of Mrs. Horace Mann. Like De Tocqueville, this remarkable man visited the United States in its early years and wrote a detailed account of this new phenomenon.

Full of shrewd social commentary and unique vignettes of the America of this period-of Boston, for instance, where Sarmiento met the Horace Manns and later Emerson and Longfellow-Travels should take its place among the important commentaries on the United States written during the last century by foreign visitors.

Professor Rockland's introductory essay provides the broader context in which Travels must be seen: its place in Sarmiento's life and career and its importance as testimony to forgotten lines of influence between North and South America.

In 1732 Ambrose Madison, grandfather of the future president, languished for weeks in a sickbed then died. The death, soon after his arrival on the plantation, bore hallmarks of what planters assumed to be traditional African medicine.

African slaves were suspected of poisoning their master.

This book explores the many broader meanings of this suspected murder and its aftermath. It weaves together a series of transformations that followed, such as the negotiation of master-slave relations, the transformation of Igbo culture in the New World, and the social memory of a particular slave community.
