Description

Florida has had many frontiers. Imagination, greed, missionary zeal, disease, war, and diplomacy have shaped its historical boundaries. Bodies of water, soils and their associated floral and faunal ecology, the patterns of Native American occupation, and ways of colonizing have defined where the various old and new world peoples who have invaded Florida since 1500 settled, and the degree to which each prospered as each built its own frontier upon the remains of its predecessors efforts. Paul E. Hoffman's important new history of colonial Florida tells the story of those frontiers and how the land and the people shaped them during the three centuries from 1565 to 1860.show more
