La Pointe, once an Ojibwe village, destination for French voyageurs, and center of the Great Lakes fur trade, is now the gateway to Apostle Islands National Lakeshore just off the Wisconsin shore of Lake Superior. First published in 1960 and long out of print, this classic account of three centuries of the history of La Pointe and Madeline Island is now available again, supplemented with a chronology of events, a glossary of Ojibwe names, a new foreword, and the numerous maps, charts, and illustrations Hamilton Ross collected and prepared for the original edition.
