A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

In A Gathering of Rivers, Lucy Eldersveld Murphy traces the histories of Indian, multiracial, and mining communities in the western Great Lakes region during the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. For a century the Winnebagos (Ho-Chunks), Mesquakies (Fox), and Sauks successfully confronted waves of French and British immigration by diversifying their economies and commercializing lead mining.

Focusing on personal stories and detailed community histories, Murphy charts the changed economic forces at work in the region, connecting them to shifts in gender roles and intercultural relationships. She argues that French, British, and Native peoples forged cooperative social and economic bonds expressed partly by mixed-race marriages and the emergence of multiethnic communities at Green Bay and Prairie du Chien. Significantly, Native peoples in the western Great Lakes region were able to adapt successfully to the new frontier market economy until their lead mining operations became the envy of outsiders in the 1820s.

Description de la librairie

My wife and I are inveterate book collectors who have accumulated large collections prior to our marriage. Cindy has collected modern firsts but has not listed many yet, and I have had a greater interest in Midwest history, sports, autographed editions, and non-fiction. We are now officially outta shelves and want to find good homes for some of our duplicates, tag-a-longs from buying collections, and other items that we have loved too much to put back. We are merely part-time book dealers with other full time work. We endeavor to grade strictly and describe accurately with true book collectors/lovers in mind. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return it for any reason for a full refund, excluding return shipping. We are also interested in buying Midwest history, archaeology, Indian history, auto racing, and autographed presidential books and journals.
