A Unique and Historic Narrative: 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. Eliza Morrison describes her family's starving time on their homestead, and her travels by boat, dog sled, and on foot. Metis culture comes alive with the Wisconsin Death march, the Dream Dance, Indian marriage and burial customs, making maple sugar, and the Chippewa-Dakota War. Morrison relates two never-before-recorded Native stories, complete with songs.
