This book takes an interesting approach to presenting the history associated with the land area that became Big Canoe -- a gated community principally located in Pickens county, Georgia.
While beginning with the indians and their removal to Oklahoma, it progresses family by family through those that have owned tracts of land here.
No evidence exists that this culture made it to the state of Georgia. Decorative pottery and ornamental pins dating to the late archaic period have been found statewide.
The Tate family became a dynasty in this area -- Tate, Georgia.
The stories of the Tate family land acquisitions and internal relationships dominate the last third of the book and are a fun read about a rich and powerful local family.

During the Middle Archaic period an advanced culture arose in the delta region of the Mississippi River.
If you have ancestors from one of these families, you will find it very interesting.
