In 1539, Hernando de Soto landed in Florida with 1,000 soldiers, horses and slaves, and proceeded to march through 16 American states, forever changing the face of America. Contrary to the heroic myth that has sprung up around him Soto was a cruel leader in charge of the most advanced military in the world - and still, Native Americans defeated and destroyed him. As told through the eyes of a Chickasaw trader named Black Shell, the authors use archaeological data, ethnogrphic records and historical journals to bring to vibrant life the beliefs, technologies and everyday life of lost American civilizations.
