Product Details

Juliette Kinzie, the author of Wau-bun, was the well-educated daughter of a well-to-do Connecticut family who had a taste for storytelling and adventure, two things she shared with her granddaughter and namesake Juliette Low, founder of Girl Scouts. In 1830, she moved to present day Wisconsin with her new husband John Kinzie, where he took up his post as U.S. Indian Agent for the Ho-Chunk and Menominee people at Fort Winnebago. Juliette Kinzie wrote Wau-bun as a narrative of the significant years between 1830 and 1833. Her vivid descriptions of daily life, major events, and of the customs and culture of the Indigenous people give us a rare look at a time and place that was not well-documented, as told by a broad-minded and curious woman. Published in 1856, Wau-bun met with an enthusiastic reception and Kinzie was much-praised as its author. Among her admirers were President and Mrs. Lincoln.
