French Roots in the Illinois Country : The Mississippi Frontier in Colonial Times, Paperback / softback Book

French Roots in the Illinois Country : The Mississippi Frontier in Colonial Times Paperback / softback

Description

Winner of the Kemper and Leila Williams Book Prize for the Best Book on Louisiana History, French Roots in the Illinois Country creates an entirely new picture of the Illinois country as a single ethnic, economic, and cultural entity.

Focusing on the French Creole communities along the Mississippi River, Carl J.

Ekberg shows how land use practices such as medieval-style open-field agriculture intersected with economic and social issues ranging from the flour trade between Illinois and New Orleans to the significance of the different mentalities of French Creoles and Anglo-Americans.
