Publisher's Summary

The History of Starved Rock provides a wonderful overview of the famous site in Utica, Illinois, from when European explorers first viewed the bluff in 1673 through to 1911, when Starved Rock became the centerpiece of Illinois' second state park.

Mark Walczynski pulls together stories and insights from the language, geology, geography, anthropology, archaeology, biology, and agriculture of the park to provide listeners with an understanding of both the human and natural history of Starved Rock, and to put it into context with the larger history of the American Midwest.

The book is published by Northern Illinois Press, an imprint of Cornell University Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.

"Mark Walczynski has written 'the' history of Starved Rock." (The Annals of Iowa)

"An accurate, deeply researched, labor of love." (Duane Esarey, Dickson Mounds, Illinois State Museum)
