From the Chicago Tribune Lake Forester newspaper:

It all started one day in 1993, when Susan Kelsey was walking around the Sauganash neighborhood on the Northwest Side of Chicago, where she then lived.


"There's a plaque in the neighborhood," Kelsey, now of Lake Forest, said. "It was on the edge of the Billy Caldwell reservation. I started wondering who this guy was and why this neighborhood was called Sauganash."


Thus began a 23-year effort to research Billy Caldwell, the bi-cultural fur trader, fighter, treaty negotiator and tribal leader also known as Chief Sauganash.


"He was such a key leader in those times," Kelsey said. "That's why I wrote this book, I couldn't [initially] find out anything about him."


Her research has culminated in "Following Chief Sauganash," an e-book that will be for sale on Amazon starting March 17.
