This powerful novel tells the story of Hinachuba Lucia, a Native American wise woman caught in the rapidly changing world of the early colonial South. With compelling drama and historical accuracy, Apalachee portrays the decimation of the Indian mission culture of Spanish Florida by English Carolina during Queen Anne’s war at the beginning of the eighteenth century and also portrays the little-known institution of Indian slavery in colonial America. The novel recounts the beginnings of the colony of South Carolina and the struggle between the colonists and the Indians, who were at first trading partners―bartering deerskins and Indian slaves for guns and cloth―and then enemies in the Yamasee War of 1715.

When the novel opens, Spanish missionaries have settled in the Apalachee homeland on what is now the eastern Florida panhandle, ravaging the native population with disease and altering its culture with Christianity. Despite these changes, the Apalachees maintain an uneasy coexistence with the friars.

Everything changes when English soldiers and their Indian allies from the colony of Carolina invade Spanish Florida. After being driven from her Apalachee homeland by the English, Lucia is captured by Creek Indians and sold into slavery in Carolina, where she becomes a house slave at Fairmeadow, a turpentine plantation near Charles Town. Her beloved husband, Carlos, is left behind, free but helpless to get Lucia back.

Swept by intricate and inexorable currents, Lucia’s fate is interwoven with those of Juan de Villalva, a Spanish mission priest, and Isaac Bull, an Englishman in search of fortune in the New World. As the three lives unfold, the reader is drawn into a morally complex world where cultures meet and often clash.

Both major and minor characters come alive in Hudson’s hands, but none so memorably as the wise woman Lucia―beautiful, aristocratic, and strong. Informed by the author’s extensive research, Apalachee is an ambitious, compelling novel that tells us as much about the ethnic and social diversity of the southern colonies as it does about the human heart.

Yes, I was a tour guide in the Ancient City of St. Augustine and studied much of its history. However, our information for touring and what we gathered refer mainly to events, “Colonel Moore attacked the city in 1740. He tried to take the fort, but failed and instead burned the town to the ground and then went about Florida attacking settlements throughout, capturing Indians, Africans and Spaniards. He ransomed the Spaniards and took the others and sold them into slavery.”
In this book the Ms. Hudson brings to life the raids, the harm, and the fears, that the residents of Florida experienced at the hands of the English and cooperating Indian tribes. She gives an excellent account of the hunger, lack of shelter, and living conditions of Indian and Spanish refugees in their travels from their hometowns to St. Augustine and in the city itself. She clearly brings out the biases of the Spanish to the Africans and Indians. Even though, Spain’s slavery system was one of strict governing laws and all slaves had a right to work for freedom, there still remained biases of superiority. We knew the natives were converted, but what were the communal and inner processes involved by the Indians? She reveals that very clearly. She follows that with the main character's abduction into slavery, her travels to the location of sale and purchase, the conditions of enslavement, and the constant desire to escape. The humane way the English treat each other, and the inconsistency of it in the way their slaves were treated is daunting. She brings the dynamics of the human spirit for both the slave and slave owners to light and the limitations of life in which the slaves live. Love, competition, untrustworthiness, and trustworthiness, friendship, jealousies are extant at the slave level as the owner level, but within the confines of domination. Frontier trading with the Indians of various tribes and the dissension existing between the English and the tribes comes to blows. I suggest that before visiting the ancient city of St. Augustine, one should read this book. So much will come alive, for the reader, especially since the fort to which Colonel Moore laid siege, is still intact and open to the public. It is a federal park. Laurence Amuso

This is a difficult story that speaks of some of our nation’s more shameful history. While we have become a powerful and great country that has much to boast of, we also have much that we would rather ignore. This is an account of one of those episodes.
The sadness is compounded by the fact that we still have similar situations in our world today. We have a person wanting to be our nation’s leader who says he is willing to round up some eleven million human beings and export them to places from whence they have fled. He characterizes them as rapist and criminals. A few are, as are a few of our more prominent citizens.

Apalachee is a story taking place from 1704 - 1716 in the area of Florida and the Carolinas. Lucia is an Apalachee Indian, granddaughter of Isabel, the White Sun Woman of her clan. This story is full of the rich history of a time not well known about. There is romance between Lucia and Carlos, as well as Charity and Isaac. This is a tale of two families bound together by Lucia and her struggle to survive in her world which is being forced to follow Christianity as well as her struggle to survive once she is taken as a slave and ends up in Charity's household. How will Lucia continue to serve as the White Sun Woman while living in a so called civilized world. Will Lucia find a way to return to Carlos? Isaac is green to the ways of the new world. He falls in love with Charity but it is not to be, as her father wishes to solidify the families fortune by having her marry her cousin, Henry, whom Charity fears. The richness of the story transports you to a long ago time. It was not a fast read, sometimes slow, but I found that fit the timeframe of the story. It was a good visit to a time I did not know much about.

When I first started this book, I wasn't sure that I would want to continue with it. It took a while to get into some of the detail regarding Indian culture. I guess I was expecting mind candy and actually found meat and potatoes! As the previous reviewer said, this is definitely not a quick read, at least not at first, but please stick with it. It is so touching without being cheap. I feel like I got a double bonus- an detailed look into Indian life and lore plus a romantic historical story. What I think I loved the most about this is that there was no doubt at all that what you witnessed between Carlos and Lucia was true love, a love that stayed with them during the long time they were apart. Unfortunately, even though you find that love conquers all, sometimes life happens, and the results turned out to be so sad. It was also so disturbing to know that the encounters that the Indians had with the English were all too accurate. It was definitely worth taking your time and savoring this book. This was indeed a quality labor of love.

Apalachee will be remembered as a riveting story of historical fiction, with a love story rivaling the talents of Lamour and a colorful description of everyday life and faith for our native people reminiscent of the Gears. The relationship between the natives, the Spanish, the English and the French brings an exciting setting to a complicated and exhillarating story. The sympathy between the natives and the Africans brings recognition to a common bond of injustice. Overall an excellent plot and character development that ensures I'll be reading Hudson again.
