Volume 148 in the Civilization of the American Indian Series
"The Chippewas of Lake Superior is a solid blend of history, ethnology, and journalism that provides us with a sweeping account of over 300 years of Chippewa history. . . .Unlike many books about Indians, this one does not end with the defeat of the Indians. The author brings the Chippewas' story right up to the present, and in the process he shows that the Chippewas are still an active, vital tribal entity. Danziger points out that all Americans can learn much from the Chippewas' story, 'if we listen.'"-Western Historical Quarterly.
"Well researched and written, the book utilizes both primary and secondary sources. Especially valuable were 24 personal interviews conducted in 1975 with reservation Indians. . . .Danziger is to be commended for his effort as it is a valuable contribution to Indian history and will be helpful in a further understanding of the Chippewas in American life. Both the specialist and the general reader will find the study meaningful."-Ohioana Quarterly.
"This handsome volume is an excellent addition to our study of the Lake Superior Chippewa bands. . . .The book will be welcomed by scholars and the general reader interested in the history of the Native American."-Journal of the West.
"An admirable job of summarizing and synthesizing a wealth of documentation. . . .Highly recommended."-Library Journal.
