The Nacoochee Valley . . . Guidebook to its archaeological sites – $16

Just published by the Americas Revealed Book Series

nacoochee-cover-guide-emailMany 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, would cost an additional $10 a book.  To order go to:

A Guide to the Native American Sites of the Nacoochee Valley


The following two tabs change content below.
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.



    I’ve been following your posts for several months now and have been so intrigued by them that I just bought “The Fogotten History of North Georgia” and “The Nacoochee Valley” books from Amazon and they arrived yesterday. I paid $39.00 for the second book and if I had seen this post prior to that purchase, I would’ve gone to the linked website above instead. I just hope that extra money I paid mostly goes to your research, because if that is the case, it will be money well spent. Blessings, Margie

    • The guide to Native American sites, Margie, is just a section of the book you bought. It is a third book. Some people just wanted to know where the Native American sites were without getting into the Colonial and later history of the region.


    Hi Richard,

    I would like the complete book. Do I need to purchase it through Amazon?
    I can do that, but at any rate, I definitely would like to have the one that includes the history.

    Thanks so much,

The Information World is changing!

People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.

We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.

During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.

Support Us!
