Author:

Lawson, a naturalist, writer and explorer left England arriving in the Carolinas in 1700. He set out from Charleston and traveled over 600 miles taking careful notes on what he saw. His descriptions of the Indian tribes and the natural environment in the area are quite detailed. On a later expedition he was captured tortured and killed. This incident helped to inflame tempers and soon the Tuscarora War broke out.
