Summary

Young lawyer William (Willy) Poe puts out a shingle in Marquette, Michigan, in 1873 hoping to meet a woman who will take him seriously. His first client, the alluring Charlotte Kawbawgam, known as Laughing Whitefish, offers an enticing challenge  ; a compelling case of injustice at the hands of powerful mining interests. Laughing Whitefish is a gripping account of barriers between indigenous people and their legal rights. This edition includes an introduction by Michigan appellate justice Matthew L.M. Fletcher contextualizing the novel and the actual decisions of the Michigan Supreme Court ruling, in favor of Laughing Whitefish.
