The French Regime in Wisconsin and the Northwest - Louise Phelps Kellogg. Every student of eighteenth century American history should have this book, which is a publication of the renowned State Historical Society of Wisconsin. More than simply a history of WI, it discusses every major figure and event that influenced the history of North America, with special focus on the 18th century. Historians interested in the fur trade and the French and Indian War will find it especially valuable. The author intentionally wrote from the standpoint of the West, rather than the East as in previous histories of the area. (1925), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, index, 544 pp.
