Description

History, as it happened, on both sides of the turbulent rapids at the Sault, dividing a settlement into two countries. In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and southern Lake Superior, historical characters tell their stories in their own words: the Anishinaabe defeating the destructive Iroquois; the travels and determination of the Jesuit priests; Alexander Henry's adventures from Mackinac Island to Lake Superior; fur traders with Indigenous wives evolving into a new culture. This book explores the culture of the Anishinaabe homeland; French fur trade commerce; entrepreneurs' shipbuilding and copper mining; war declared by the Americans; Canada rescued by its Indigenous neighbours; and religious encroachment. Ultimately, creating a vibrant Sault Ste. Marie. Tim C. Review of Sault Ste. Marie and Beyond I just completed this wonderful book and thoroughly enjoyed it The descriptions of life over the centuries through the eyes of the voyageurs, coureurs des bois, merchants, and indigenous participants and their shaping of early Canada (and the USA for that matter) really made the history come alive for me and expanded my point of view. And to think this knowledge was imparted to me by a person related to the great Tecumseh I particularly liked the fact that you included historic paintings and pictures in the text. This added a lot to my ability to imagine the scenes of the time. I also learned about the Sault, an area of which I knew little. You are a great ambassador for the City Finally, the best quote of the book in my mind: from Elder Willard Pine " there are no bad people, only bad choices ."
