The Nacoochee Valley . . . Guidebook to its archaeological sites – $16
Just published by the Americas Revealed Book Series
Many of you are poor mixed-heritage trash like myself and can only afford one copy, or maybe even no copies, of The Nacoochee Valley . . . Crossroads of the Americas. I have deleted all sections of the “Crossroads” book that refer to the history of the valley after 1700 AD. This book is in full color and contains the same descriptions of the expeditions of archaeologists Charles C. Jones, James Mooney, John Rogan, George Heye, Robert Wauchope and the University of Georgia in the Nacoochee Valley and surrounding areas. It also contains the same detailed descriptions of each designated archaeological site, complete with GPS coordinates. However, it contains no information on the ancient volcanoes, Ice Age, French Huguenot explorers, Sephardic gold miners, Georgia Gold Rush, early Anglo-American settlers, Chicken Industry Boom, filming of “I’d Climb the Highest Mountain, the development of Alpine Helen, etc.
Because of “Crossroads” and this book, many Nacoochee Valley residents are discovering that they live on very important archaeological sites.
This is a price that you can afford for Christmas gifts . . . if you are only moderately poor mixed-heritage trash. LOL
48 pages in full color – white gloss finish, heavy weight paper – perfect bound
The book will only be available from the publisher, since listing on Amazon.com, would cost an additional $10 a book. To order go to:

Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history.Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.
