Summary
Written in 1894 and recently recovered from the archives of the University of Minnesota, this autobiography tells the story of a Chippewa-Scots-French woman from Madeline Island in Lake Superior. The child and grandchild of fur traders, the author describes her family's starving time on their homestead, and her travels by boat, dog sled, and on foot. She gives her views of the Wisconsin Death March, the Dream Dance, Native American marriage and burial customs, making maple sugar, and the Chippewa-Dakota War. She also relates two never-before-recorded Indian stories, complete with songs
