Her Stories pieces together the lives of eleven women who lived or traveled through the Detroit River region in the 18th and 19th centuries. Unfortunately, some of these women did not leave behind any records of their own making. Like so many other women from the past, some of their stories must be told using scraps and pieces of the better known histories recounted by men.
