WILD ON THE SUPERIOR FRONTIER

With the opening of the Michigan State Canal in 1855, thousands of westernized people migrated into the grand Lake Superior watershed.  They came from the eastern States, Lower Canada and Europe, all of them seeking new lives and opportunities in mid America.  In the early days access into the cold aqueous heart of the North American Continent was only by boat.  Vessels would test themselves on a great sea that challenged Captains and passengers with furious outbursts of deadly weather.  Onward individuals and families of settlers came carrying with them their personal histories and cultural backgrounds.  They brought their love stories, their religious faiths, their personal skills and industriousness, their foibles and their hopes for rewarding lives.  Their endeavors were many.  Prospectors searching for silver, copper, gold and iron; lumbermen hunting for timber; coastal sailors plying between the fledgling ports at Marquette, Superior/Duluth, Fort William and prince Arthurs Landing; madams involved in the sex trade and women looking for equality with their male counterparts.  Among the many were newspaper editors promoting their towns, writing their stories with little regard for personal privacy of citizens should they transgress the morals and decorum of the times.  This is a book for those who desire a large picture of the past in Superior Country.  It contains stories with humor, deceit, awry cases of justice, rough voyages on the Big Lake, amazing finds of mineral wealth, and loving and strained relationships between men and women on the 19th Century frontier.
James R StevensJames R Stevens

Writer/editor James R. ‘Jim’ Stevens was raised on a dairy farm at St. Marys, Ontario, Canada. Like many Canadian youth he was a hockey player and in 1960 he went off to Ithaca, New York on a scholarship at Cornell University. He has had published a wide range of non fiction books in Canada that vary extensively in their subject matter.

 “As an author with the blessing or curse of a Gemini construct in personality many things interest me passionately, however, my bottom line is that a book of mine must have insight and have an enduring quality for readers. A good non fiction book will be valuable long into the future.”  At present Stevens has five books in print in Canada and one of them has been moving off of booksellers shelves for thirty-two years.
