Who Was I?
Creating a Living History Persona
by Cathy Johnson
“… Much has been written already about the Eastern colonies: this book brings to light sources from many different areas of the country, including … the Appalachians to the Plains, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico.
“The European-influenced history of the Illinois Country and the Louisiana/ Missouri territory goes back much earlier than many people imagine. From the earliest French exploration of the Missouri, Kaw, and Mississippi River basins to the influx of British, German, Scots-Irish, and American naturalists and explorers, longhunters and settlers into Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, and beyond, the timeline stretches from 1680 to the present day. Factoring in the first inhabitants puts occupation back to Ice Age and earlier.” — from the introduction
” A wonderful, informative, bright read.” — Mark Baker, Author/Historian
“This book should be of interest to anyone involved in the interpretation of history, a worthy addition to the field and a great resource.” — Dr. Jay Anderson, Author of Living History Sourcebook, Time Machines
