A colorful fictional account for middle-school children of the meeting between De Soto and the Alabama Indians on his historic expedition through the South. These Indians were the last of the Mound Builders, led by a peace-loving king. The Gold Disc of Coosa describes their civilized culture in the years until 1540, when the Indians finally made their fateful stand against the Spanish at Maubila.
