Holzhueter’s book examines women’s roles in the region only minimally and gives a superficial telling of Ojibwe history. Throughout all these changes, whether ecological or cultural, Madeline Island and the Chequamegon region remain a vibrant part of Wisconsin, with a dynamic history that extends further back than in almost any other section of the state. The story Holzhueter tells is of a region and people often shifting and working to meet new challenges.
