A Grammar and Dictionary of the Timucua Language Press Reviews

Granberry's volume is a remarkably comprehensive treatment of the Timucuan language and will undoubtedly stand as a classic reference for linguists, ethnohistorians, and archaeologists alike. He has done a commendable job of compiling, synthesizing, and preserving what little evidence remains of this now-extinct Native American language, finishing a task begun by Spanish friars nearly four centuries ago. —John E.
