To many of us in South Florida, and "oldtimer" is a person who has lived there for greater than 5 years. Prehistoric Peoples of South Florida considers the tradition heritage of the genuine South Florida "oldtimers" courting from 10,000 B.C. during the invasion by means of Europeans and analyzes the ways that they tailored to their setting via time—or triggered their atmosphere to conform to them.
South Florida is a organic island, its plant groups circumscribed through the southern limits of frost. Its peoples have been precise from these to the north and have been much less studied through students. in recent times the velocity of analysis has elevated, yet there was no test at synthesis considering the fact that John M. Goggin wrote his still-unpublished manuscript at the Glades approximately part a century in the past. Prehistoric Peoples of South Florida assembles the to be had wisdom and discusses competing theories, and does so in phrases which are comprehensible to the overall reader. McGoun outlines a cultural method that maintained a magnificent continuity for 10,000 years—before being destroyed by way of centuries of ecu contact.
