Life Among the Lake Superior Ojibway

Author Johann Georg Kohl, Introduction by Robert E. Bieder

Minnesota Historical Society Press (October 1, 1985)

Covers the Ojibwa fur trade, canoe building, quillwork, native foods, hunting, fishing, and more.


"Johann Kohl was an educated, urbane, and well-trained German geographer, ethnologist, and popular writer. During his visit with the Lake Superior Ojibwa in 1855, he made useful and unbiased studies of their material culture, religion, and folklore. . . . The extent of Kohl's observations is really amazing. They cover the fur trade, canoe building, domestic utensils, quillwork, native foods, hunting, fishing, trapping, cooking, toboggans, snowshoes, gardening, lodge building, games and warfare."—Museum of the Fur Trade Quarterly
