In the late 1800's and early 1900's, Alber Coryer (Core-yer), a colorful chronicler and the grandson of a fur trade voyageur-turned-farmer, collected history and folklore from his older family members, neighbors, community members, Native Americans, and fur trading era descendants in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. Co-author Mary Elise Antoine will share some of the interesting, funny and significant stories Coryer collected as detailed in her book "Frenchtown Chronicles of Prairie du Chien: History and Folklore from Wisconsin's Frontier."
