Local author Sandra Rousseau recently released her second book, entitled Sault Ste. Marie and Beyond: A History of It’s People 17th-21st Centuries, including Mackinac Island and Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
This book explores the culture of the Anishinaabe homeland, French fur trade commerce, entrepreneur’s shipbuilding and copper mining, war declared by the Amercans, Canada’s rescue by its Indigenous neighbours, and religious encroachment.
Books cost $20 each and can be purchased at the Ermatinger-Clergue Old Stone House on Bay Street, Shabby Motley on Queen St. E., Scott Coffee C. near Value Village, and Super Sensations Café (formerly Westport) in the Station Mall. Both books are also available on Amazon, or by emailing Sandra herself at [email protected]
