    Excellent text for research I was pleased at how many of Dr Rivers source texts I have on my shelves already The Rose Cottage Chronicles, Cracker Times And Pioneer Lives The Florida Reminiscences Of George Gillett Keen And Sarah Pamela Williams, Anna Madgigine Jai Kingsley African Princess, Florida Slave, Plantation Slaveowner, Echoes from a Distant Frontier The Brown Sisters Correspondence from Antebellum Florida Slavery in Florida is a valuable and necessary addition to any research on antebellum Florida I especially noted the point that the Second Seminole War was as much a slave revolt as an Indian uprising, something I tried to bring forward when writing Smuggler s Bride.
