Matthew R. Thick's The Great Water: A Documentary History of Michigan contains early histories of the Native-American Anishinabek tribes and news reports, stories, letters, and historical records of Michigan's more modern past in this ethnographical text of Michigan's history. The title is derived from the Anishinabek Kitchi Gami, or "Great Water," which was the original name for Michigan before the introduction of the Euro-American population. This book also includes the stories of significant moments in Michigan, including civil rights and women's rights laws, environmental change, and Michigan's growing industries.
