From Book Announcements in Wis. Mag. of Hist, Autumn, 2003, p. 52: "In the mid-1980's boat landings in Northern Wisconsin became the battlefields in the walleye war, as Ojibwe fishermen sought to exercise the spearfishing rights guaranteed by nineteenth-century treaties and protesters sought to stop them. Larry Nesper explores both public and private aspects of the controversy, analyzing the violence on the boat landings as well as the importance of spearfishing in Ojibwe bistory and culture." Includes extensive coverage of incidents at Star Lake.
