CHOICE Review

Although this book delivers amply on its promise to offer a fresh look at events at Fort Michilimackinac during Pontiac's War (1763-66), it also offers an uncommon abundance of related content (visual, documentary, and bibliographic) that truly enhances the reader's ability to grasp the significance of the war, the locale, and the people involved. The culmination of Widder's three-decade career as curator of history for Mackinac State Historic Parks, the volume leaves no stone unturned. It brings together scrupulous documentary research, beautiful illustrations, and clear prose narration to tell anew the story of cross-cultural encounters at this vital, albeit frequently overlooked, node of early North American empires. Images of historic maps, documents, and archaeological objects recovered are interspersed with contemporary photography of the site to great effect. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General collections and above. J. W. Parmenter Cornell University
