Gone to Croatan

Origins of North American Dropout Culture

Ron Sakolski     1994     382p     6 x 9

An absolutely incredible subversive history of america and many of its inhabitants attempts to subvert race and have a healthier relationship with nature. Viewed through cracks in the cartographies of control, including ‘tri-racial isolate’ communities, buccaneers, ‘white Indians,’ black Islamic movements, the Maroons of the Great Dismal Swamp, the Métis nation, scandalous eugenics theories, rural hippie communes, and many other aspects of North American autonomous cultures.

These are ‘hurt’ copies from the publisher. Covers are damaged (usually torn or missing pieces), but insides and spine are clean, crisp and brand new.
