A Year with the Sauk and Meskwaki, 1817-1818
Did you ever wonder what life was like for
the native people who lived here before us? Twelve
Moons: A Year with the Sauk and Meskwaki, 1817-1818 takes
the reader on a month-by-month journey through the seasons and
across the forests and prairies of the upper Midwest surrounding the
Mississippi and Rock Rivers. Experience the ingenuity and
challenges of native peoples who occupied this part of Illinois just
prior to Statehood in 1818.
This book follows the Sauk and Meskwaki through a year of daily life
as they hunted, trapped, farmed, mined, and traveled, all in harmony
with the changing seasons and the resources on which they relied for
their basic way of life. Join them in practicing their ancient
seasonal traditions during this final time before encroaching
settlers and mounting military pressures changed their way of life
