THE INDIAN SLAVE TRADE: The Rise of the English Empire in the American South, 1670-1717

New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 2002. Hardcover. Later printing. "This absorbing book is the first ever to focus on the traffic in Indian slaves during the early years of the American South. The Indian slave trade was of central importance from the Carolina coast to the Mississippi Valley for nearly fifty years, linking southern lives and creating a whirlwind of violence and profit-making, argues Alan Gallay. He documents in vivid detail how the trade operated, the processes by which Europeans and Native Americans became participants, and the profound consequences for the South and its peoples." 444 p. Octavo. Original brown paper-covered boards, with gilt titles. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Fine / Fine. Item #70695
