Summary
"This contribution to contact period studies points to the Lasley Vore site in modern Oklahoma, 13 miles south of Tulsa along the Arkansas River, as the most likely first meeting place of Plains Indians and Europeans more than 300 years ago. Odell presents a full account of the presumed location of the Tawakoni village visited by Jean-Baptiste Benard, Sieur de la Harpe about 1718, as revealed through the analysis of excavated materials by nine specialist collaborators. In a well-written narrative report, employing careful study and innovative analysis supported by appendixes containing the excavation data, Odell combines documentary history and archaeological evidence to pinpoint the probable site of the first European contact with North American Plains Indians."--Jacket
