About the Author

Carl J. Ekberg, a professor emeritus of history at Illinois State University, is also the author of the award-winning Colonial Ste. Genevieve: An Adventure on the Mississippi Frontier.


"A scholar's delight... Ekberg is the first historian to call attention to the unique pattern of French colonial settlement in Illinois." -- John Mack Faragher, American Historical Review "An extraordinarily learned and yet most readable book... A revolutionary book ... [that] sheds subtle light on the significant differences between the French and English colonial experiences." -- Morris S. Arnold, Louisiana History "This book will remain the definitive study on this subject for a long time. It should be required reading for anyone, scholar or layperson, curious about life in the French settlements in North America." -- Pierre Lebeau, Journal of Illinois History ADVANCE PRAISE "A great comprehensive revisionist work on colonial Illinois, this should become a brisk seller early on and remain in demand for many years to come. Quite simply, no respectable library--public, college, or university--should be without this book." -- Robert McColley, author of Slavery and Jeffersonian Virginia
