Full title: "The history of the American Indians; particularly those nations adjoining to the Missisippi [!] East and West Florida, Georgia, South and North Carolina, and Virginia: containing an account of their origin, language, manners, religious and civil customs, laws, form of government, punishments, conduct in war and domestic life, their habits, diet, agriculture, manufactures, diseases and method of cure ... With observations on former historians, the conduct of our colony governors, superintendents, missionaries, &c. Also an appendix, containing a description of the Floridas, and the Missisippi [!] lands, with their productions -- the benefits of colonizing Georgiana, and civilizing the Indians -- and the way to make all the colonies more valuable to the mother country".
From the Colton Storm catalogue: "Adair's work is difficult to appraise because of his theories regarding the Jewish origin of the Native Americans. Nevertheless, he was an intelligent observer. Vail calls it a "standard work," and Swanton considers it "basal" to everything in the Southeast. Concerns the period "since 1735"."
