As Professor Don H.Doyle says on the book that: “This is the story of birth and development of a rural American community, from its origins at the turn of the nineteenth century to the years that followed the Civil War. 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.

While the sale of the territory by Spain back to France in 1800 went largely unnoticed, fear of an eventual French invasion spread nationwide when, in 1801, Napoleon sent a military force to secure New Orleans. Southerners feared that Napoleon would free all the slaves in Louisiana, which could trigger slave uprisings elsewhere.  Though Jefferson urged moderation, Federalists sought to use this against Jefferson and called for hostilities against France. Undercutting them, Jefferson took up the banner and threatened an alliance with Britain, although relations were uneasy in that direction.
