“The American South was explored and settled by the Spanish, French, and English. In a clear, lively style, Doherty discusses the lives of nine people who were primarily responsible for these settlements—Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, Sir Walter Raleigh, Captain John Smith, Cecil and Leonard Calvert, Henry Woodward, Pierre le Moyne d’Iberville, Jean Baptiste le Moyne de Bienville, and James Oglethorpe. Although the author focuses on . . . these Europeans, he also covers the impact that they had on the Native American population.”
