Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Sunday, January 23, 2022
I got this vintage hardcover at a local Goodwill thrift shop. Originally published in 1917, it includes folk tales and legends from indigenous peoples from the region that is now northern Michigan, with photos - some apparently staged, others showing individuals or locations mentioned in the text. There are historical entries as well, covering such things as the establishment of missions in the region. There's a glossary of English-to-Ottawa words and phrases at the end of the book. (I did notice that the dedication was to those brave souls who "brought civilization" to the region, so... perhaps not as respectful of the civilizations that were already there as it might have been...)

I left this book, bagged against the elements, in the Indian Rock geocache in Windham NH; hope someone enjoys it! (The cache is located near a plaque commemorating the site as a former Native American community.)
