The Making of Pioneer Wisconsin: voices of early settlers
By: Michael E. Stevens
Between the mid-1830s and 1850 Wisconsin underwent enormous changes as large numbers of Native people were pushed out of the area and more than a half million newcomers settled in Wisconsin.

These narratives are woven together with context provided by historian, Michael E. Stevens.
