Snelling used much of his own collection of Seminole postcards, some nearly a century old, to show the public what Seminole culture was like and in some cases, still is. Gaining trust and admiration for his efforts, the Seminole tribesmen and women granted Mr. Snellings interviews and allowed their photographs to be featured. Not only does this book cover historical matters concerning the Seminoles survival in the harsh Florida terrain for the past three hundred years but some contemporary environmental and cultural concerns as well. This book is a ‘must have’ for those interested in Florida Seminole culture and history or anyone who simply is interested in a large part of Florida history.
