It vividly portrays the sights and sounds of the prairie, the lives of the Indians and pioneers, the relations between farming men and women, and the ways the settlers adjusted to the advent of railroads and commercial agriculture.” Faragher divided Sugar Creek: Life on the Illinois Prairie into five sections. The “Howling Wilderness” examines the dispossession of the Algonquian speaking Indians and settlement of Anglo-Americans on the frontier. “The Country of Plenty to Eat” focuses on the creation of a distinctive rural landscape in Illinois. Social relationships between men and women were discussed in “Lords of the Soil, Tenants of the Hearth” and the community life in the west and the transition to commercial agriculture were described in “All is Changed.” Faragher used the narrative of Robert Pulliam, who was born in Virginia and migrated to Illinois with his parents before settling on Sugar Creek.

Algonquians mostly lived along the river where they could go fishing and hunting. The authors said, “The hunting parties were traversing a well-watered and heavily forested landscape which white men would one day call Maine” (pg 5). They used to be called as “Penobscot” or “people of the white rocks country”. Their land marked the northern limits of Indian farming because late thaws and early frosts let them make only a little corn, squash, and beans (pg 6). In addition, the time-honored habits of fishing and hunting on which their survival depended were the main aspect for the annual change between seasonal camps up and down the Penobscot River valley (pg 6).
