"Patty Loew's new book about Wisconsin's Native Americans may be the most authentic treatment to date." (Wisconsin Academy Review)
"A wonderful, easy read with evocative photographs." (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
"When I first looked at this book, I thought it was an interesting history of Native Americans in the state. The more I think about it, however, the more I realize it is the principal history of the state. . . . You really can't fully understand Wisconsin history without the information in this book." (Wisconsin State Journal)
