Battle for the soul : Métis children encounter evangelical Protestants at Mackinaw Mission, 1823-1837 by Keith R Widder( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1823 William and Amanda Ferry opened a boarding school for Metis children on Mackinac Island, Michigan Territory, setting in motion an intense spiritual battle to win the souls and change the lives of the children, their parents, and all others living at Mackinac. Battle for the Soul demonstrates how a group of enthusiastic missionaries, empowered by an uncompromising religious motivation, served as agents of Americanization. The Ferry's high hopes crumbled, however, as they watched their work bring about a revival of Catholicism and their students refuse to abandon the fur trade as a way of life. The story of the Mackinaw Mission is that of people who held different world views negotiating to create a "middle-ground" society with room for all
Beyond Pontiac's shadow : Michilimackinac and the Anglo-Indian War of 1763 by Keith R Widder( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book Jacket: On June 2, 1763, the Ojibwe captured Michigan's Fort Michilimackinac from the British. Ojibwe warriors from villages on Mackinac Island and along the Cheboygan River had surprised the unsuspecting garrison while playing a game of baggatiway. On the heels of the capture, Odawa from nearby L'Arbre Croche arrived to rescue British prisoners, setting into motion a complicated series of negotiations between the Ojibwe, Odawa, and the Menominee and other Indians from Wisconsin. Because nearly all Native people in the Michilimackinac borderland had allied themselves with the British before the attack, they refused to join the Michilimackinac Ojibwe in their effort to oust the British from the upper country; the turmoil effectively halted the fur trade. Beyond Pontiac's Shadow examines the circumstances leading up to the attack and the course of events in the aftermath that resulted in the regarrisoning of the fort and the restoration of the fur trade. At the heart of this discussion is an analysis of French-Canadian and Indian communities at the Straits of Mackinac and throughout the pays d'en haut. An accessible guide to this important period in Michigan, American, and Canadian history, Beyond Pontiac's Shadow sheds invaluable light on a political and cultural crisis
