Overview

An updated reprint of the definitive history of a storied corner of the Upper Great Lakes—Madeline Island and the Chequamegon region on Wisconsin’s Lake Superior.   A new foreword by Steve Cotherman, director of the Madeline Island Museum, brings the text of this book up to date on the history of Madeline Island and the Chequamegon region from the days before the missions to present-day tourism.  Madeline Island played a significant role in the early history of Wisconsin and was an important outpost in the fur trade. Ojibwe from Wisconsin and surrounding areas view the island as a sacred place. Other Indian Nations, such as the Huron and Ottawa, also trace their history to Madeline Island.  Today, Madeline Island and nearby Bayfield are popular tourist destinations, drawing tens of thousands of visitors every summer and throughout the winter.
