“Higginbotham has given to American historiography a microcosmic view of one of the earliest and most important outposts in the colonial new world. The Latin South can henceforth not be ignored.” – Alabama Historical Quarterly

“The definitive account . . . superbly recounted.” – Journal of Southern History

 “Meticulously documented. . . . Recommended for libraries interested in the colonial period.” – Choice

“Mind-boggling . . . a stupendous job of research. It is amazing that Higginbotham can recreate in such detail the lives of these people. All history books should be written like this.” – BirminghamMagazine
