Description: "A model of clarity and lightly worn erudition, and it contains the best and most straightforward description of the four Columbus voyages and their implications for the Amerindians I have seen. . . . Columbus had found large, permanent villages of Tainos Indians in Hispaniola and Puerto Rico, each governed by a chief or cacique, and each containing an average of two thousand people. Rouse vividly describes their everyday life."--Kenneth Maxwell, New York Times Book Review "[A] masterpiece of the cultural/historical approach . . . informative and accessible . . . Highly recommended for a general audience and anyone interested in the [Columbus] quincentenary."--William S. Dancey, Library Journal "A fascinating account."--Philip Morrison, Scientific American "A highly readable work. . . . This timely book is probably the best account ever of the Taino Indians."--Francis Poole, Magill Book Reviews "[An] excellent study, illustrated with many fine maps, charts, line drawings. . . . [For] all levels of readers."-- Choice "The best and most complete book on the Tainos by a scholar who has studied their culture all over the Greater Antilles for half a century."--Ricardo E. Alegra "We are fortunate indeed to have at last the authoritative and up-to-date account of the Taino Indians from the acknowledged dean of Taino scholars. And just in time so that we may remember them too during this Quincentennial year."--Kirkpatrick Sale "In view of the quincentenary of the voyages of Columbus this is a timely book. It is also a significant one, for it is the first major revision of Caribbean archaeology in English since 1935. No other American archaeologist is better suited to write such an encompassing volume."--David R. Watters
