New Book Relates Early Trader's Life

Queen Marinette book cover (22327 bytes)Queen Marinette - Spirit of Survival on the Great Lakes Frontier is a new book by Beverly Hayward Johnson, published by White Water Associates, Inc., and distributed by Clearcut Recordings. This historical biography tells the remarkable story of Marinette Chevalier, a French and Native American woman who lived during the early half of the 1800s.

Marinette ran a trading post located near the mouth of the Menominee River and gained a reputation far and wide as an intelligent, competent, and respected businesswoman. The manner in which she handled the extraordinary challenges in her life, helps to explain how she became a legend in her own time and the namesake for the city and county of Marinette, Wisconsin, and why contemporaries called her Queen Marinette.

This handsome book is thoroughly documented and indexed, and enhanced by its many illustrations, some of which were specially commissioned for the project. Ancestry charts, family photographs, and detailed descriptions of a few of Marinette's descendants add further value to the narrative.
