ByRichard Thornton

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The Native American Encyclopedia of Georgia is a landmark book that starts a new chapter in Southeastern Anthropology. It contains 288 pages, 34 historical maps and 110 illustrations, most of which are original architectural renderings or photographs by the author. This is the first etymological book of Native American place names that is based solely on published indigenous language dictionaries, not folklore. Twenty-eight dictionaries were utilized! The book covers both place names and Native American words recorded by Spanish, French and British explorers of Georgia during the Colonial Period, plus the Creek Indian leaders, who aided the establishment of Georgia in the 1730's and leaders of the Cherokee Nation in Georgia during the early 1800's. Sixteen years of multi-disciplinary research went into its creation. It is a “must have” reference for historians, writers, students, regional planners, architects, archaeologists, geographers, teachers, librarians and journalists.
