Written for kids ages 8-12, Ruth Murray's journey from her old home in Ohio to her family's new homestead in Illinois is also a quick read for adults who want to know more about America's pioneers in the early nineteenth century.

Objects unfamiliar to twenty-first century readers like "mobcaps" and "braces" are defined and illustrated with simple line drawings helping readers learn more about day-to-day living in the 1830's.

Based on meticulous research, Ruth by Lake and Prairie is the most accurate account of the Telegraph's voyage available, retold in a fresh creative non-fiction voice.

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.
