Alan Eckert has finished his fifth book in the "Narratives of America" series, and it's as good as the others. The focus is on Chicago and the surrounding area, a portage of tremendous importance that has so far not intruded on my consciousness. I knew it was important to communications but its importance prior to the railroads didn't register. You can canoe from Lake Michigan into the Mississippi system with very little work. the Indians knew it, and once, they burned the place down, in 1812, the 15th of August.They also attacked and destroyed the American refugees evacuating the place. It's a classic of mis-communication . ( )
