George Copway (Kahgegagahbowh, 1818?69), an Ojibwe writer and lecturer, rose to prominence in American literary, political, and social circles during the mid-nineteenth century. His colorful, kaleidoscopic life took him from the tiny Ojibwe village of his youth to the halls of state legislatures throughout the eastern United States and eventually overseas. Copway converted to Methodism as a teenager and traveled throughout the Midwest as a missionary, becoming a forceful and energetic spokesperson for temperance and the rights and sovereignty of Indians, lecturing to large crowds in the United States and Europe, and founding a newspaper devoted to Native issues. ø One of the first Native American autobiographies, Life, Letters and Speeches chronicles Copway's unique and often difficult cultural journey, vividly portraying the freedom of his early childhood, the dramatic moment of his spiritual awakening to Methodism, the rewards and frustrations of missionary work, his desperate race home to warn of a pending Sioux attack, and the harrowing rescue of his son from drowning.

The Wisconsin Historical Society published Harva Hachten's The Flavor of Wisconsin in 1981. It immediately became an invaluable resource on Wisconsin foods and foodways. This updated and expanded edition explores the multitude of changes in the food culture since the 1980s. It will find new audiences while continuing to delight the book’s many fans. And it will stand as a legacy to author Harva Hachten, who was at work on the revised edition at the time of her death in April 2006. While in many ways the first edition of The Flavor of Wisconsin has stood the test of time very well, food-related culture and business have changed immensely in the twenty-five years since its publication. Well-known regional food expert and author Terese Allen examines aspects of food, cooking, and eating that have changed or emerged since the first edition, including the explosion of farmers' markets; organic farming and sustainability; the "slow food" movement; artisanal breads, dairy, herb growers, and the like; and how relatively recent immigrants have contributed to Wisconsin's remarkably rich food scene.

W�hrend des 19. und fruehen 20. Jahrhunderts engagierten sich in Milwaukee ans�ssige Deutschamerikanerinnen in einer Vielzahl von Vereinen und Organisationen. Sie gruendeten Wohlt�tigkeitsvereine, Schul- und Kindergartenvereine, Gewerkschaftsgruppen, politische Clubs, gesellige Vereinigungen, gegenseitige Unterstuetzungsvereine, Logen, kirchliche Frauengruppen und an Turnvereine angeschlossene Frauenvereine. Die vorliegende Studie betrachtet erstmals die ganze Bandbreite deutschamerikanischer Frauenorganisation und analysiert ihre Bedeutung als Orte weiblicher Selbstentfaltung sowie der Produktion und Reproduktion ethnischer Identit�t. Neben der Entstehung einer deutschamerikanischen Frauenbewegung k�nnen dabei vor allem die komplexen Zusammenh�nge zwischen Geschlechteridealen, ethnischer Zugeh�rigkeit und Akkulturationserfahrung aufgezeigt werden.
