From the Colton Storm catalogue: "An excellent narrative of early Illinois from 1821 to around 1892. Smitten with "Western Fever," Blodgett's father brought his family out from Amherst, Massachusetts in 1830. In the spring of 1831, he settled about five miles south of the present town of Naperville. On the way from Detroit by wagon team, considerable time was spent in the village of Chicago. The narrative deals principally with Native American affairs and the Black Hawk War."
