This book reconstructs the way of life of the Taino Indians in 1492. The first half is an ethnohistory of the Taino and other tribes of the West Indies based on eye-witness accounts. The second half summarizes information added later through archaeology and ethnology. An overall conclusion considers the influences on the West Indies by other indigenous peoples of North and South America and the influence by the West Indies on the southeastern United States.
