Through the story of one family, we learn how white settlers moved into the Florida territory, taking it from the natives with false treaties and finally all-out war. The Seminoles had arrived not long before, having filled the area left by earlier natives, mainly Creeks and Miccosukees, who had died out after exposure to European diseases. Most of the arriving white settlers had been lured to the area by a federal government anxious to expand its territory. Thus, both sides were newcomers eager to "take" Florida and found themselves in inevitable conflict with one another. Paul Varnes has created a sweeping story of early Florida based on the experiences of his own ancestors as well as on military records, census materials, court records, congressional records, property records, and other sources.
