About this title

Synopsis:

Focusing on the French Creole communities and agricultural practices on both sides of the Mississippi River, this volume provides a comprehensive history of colonial settlement in the Illinois Country. Carl Ekberg presents a completely new perspective on Illinois history by examining a number of previously unexplored issues: the medieval style open field agriculture, the first use of African slaves in the region as agricultural laborers, the flour trade between Illinois and New Orleans, and the significance of the different mentalites of French Creoles and Anglo-Americans in early Illinois.

From the Back Cover:

Winner of the Kemper and Leila Williams Book Prize for the Best Book on Louisiana History, French Roots in the Illinois Country creates an entirely new picture of the Illinois country as a single ethnic, economic, and cultural entity. Focusing on the French Creole communities along the Mississippi River, Carl J. Ekberg shows how land use practices such as medieval-style open-field agriculture intersected with economic and social issues ranging from the flour trade between Illinois and New Orleans to the significance of the different mentalities of French Creoles and Anglo-Americans.
