From 1539 to 1542 Hernando de Soto and several hundred armed men cut a path of destruction and disease across the Southeast from Florida to the Mississippi River. The eighteen contributors to this volume--anthropologists, ethnohistorians, and literary critics--investigate broad cultural and literary aspects of the resulting social and demographic collapse or radical transformation of many Native societies and the gradual opening of the Southeast to European colonization.

"The multidisciplinary essays in this collection analyze in unprecedented detail and sophistication the disastrous Hernando de Soto expedition."--Choice "Without doubt, this is the most important work on the Soto expedition published in the past fifty years... It is a provocative call to scholars of many disciplines to renew their efforts to understand one of the significant events in American history. Aside from that, the interdisciplinary approach, demonstrating the expertise and special perspectives of the various authors, makes this book great fun to read."--New Mexico Historical Review "[This collection] offers the best examination of the Soto expedition currently available... It is essential reading for anyone interested in the sixteenth-century Spanish conquest."--Journal of American History
