Crops are gathered twice a year, carried home in canoes and stored in low, roomy granaries, built of stones and earth and thickly roofed with palm branches and soft earth. Illustrations by Jacques le Moyne de Morgues, an artist who accompanied the French Expedition to La Florida under René de Laudonnière in 1564. Engravings by Theodore De Bry were made of the Le Moyne Paintings and reproduced from the original first edition of 1591 From The New World - The First Pictures of America. Edited by Stefan Lorant.
