"This is groundbreaking work - a major contribution to the history of both Native Americans and women in this region. The book will become required reading for any course that focuses on the role of mixed bloods or Native Americans in the western Great Lakes and Mississippi." - R. David Edmunds, coauthor of The Fox Wars: The Mesquakie Challenge to New France"
