Death, Disease and Deliverance: Chippewa County in the Late Nineteenth Century

By Craig Donald Jacob

"The most vulnerable group among these settlers [to death] were the children, and I will devote the greatest portion of my essay to these children of the prairie. I will also examine the methods and means available to the settlers to protect the children and the community from the ample powers of death in this era. Hopefully this will provide the reader with a greater understanding of and appreciation for those who risked and sacrificed so much to settle this desolate land."

-Craig Donald Jacobs.
