Ruth by lake and prairie :
ISBN: 9780979241932. OCLC Number: 106877089 Gnu Ventures Company Publication,. . In the most complete retelling of the founding of Naperville, long-forgotten facts are woven into an historical narrative reminiscent of Little House books. Joseph Naper's twelve-year-old neice Ruth Eliza Murray, mischievous brother Amos, rugged 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 town soon to be Chicago, they head westward on covered wagons across the Illinois prairie to a new home on the DuPage River.
