From the Back Cover
Waves! Wind! Wagon trains!
In the most complete retelling of the founding of Naperville, Illinois long-forgotten facts uncovered over months of research are woven into an historical narrative reminiscent of the "Little House" books.
Joseph Naper's twelve-year-old niece Ruth Eliza Murray, mischievous little brother Amos, rugged older brother Ned, and thirteen courageous families endure windless days and stormy nights in an over-crowded sailing schooner on the Great Lakes. Landing in a swampy little village soon to be Chicago, they head westward on covered wagons across the Illinois prairie to a new home on the DuPage River.
