Full Description


This grand study surveys the emergence of Chicago from the swamps of southern Lake Michigan to the expulsion of the last Indian settlements. Pioneering historian Quaife, the first to document Chicago's founding by a black man, traces Chicago from an outpost on the frontier to being the crossroads of American commerce.
