Stealing Indian Women: Native Slavery in the Illinois Country
Based almost entirely on original source documents from the United States, France, and Spain, Carl J. Ekberg's Stealing Indian Women provides an innovative overview of Indian slavery in the Mississippi Valley. His detailed study of a fascinating and convoluted criminal case involving various slave women and a metis (mixed-blood) woodsman named Celadon illuminates race and gender relations, Creole culture, and the lives of Indian slaves--particularly women--in ways never before possible.
