This is an amazing book full of fascinating information about Rockton, Illinois. The author met and spoke with settlers who actually lived in Rockton at the time of it's settlement. Stephen Mack, Jr. and his native American wife, Hononegah, are an important part of the history of Rockton. He founded the colony on the hill overlooking Rockton which, sadly, disintegrated after his demise in 1855. It was called Pecatonic. Another founding family - the Talcotts - founded Rockton and their presence is everywhere in that city today. A group of faithful minded people who wish to keep the history of this time alive came together and rennovated the Mack house. It stands on the settlemen today in as perfect condition as it was when Stephen Mack Jr. left it. They also rennovated the trading post and the newly erected Indian Tipis and Wigwams. There are many mistakes in this important book. It was not the author's fault. He tried his best to research his subject. The passage of time does tend to dull one's memories and the people he interviewed were well into their declining years. One gross error is that Hononegah was NOT an Indian Princess. Her father was NOT a chief. Hononegah was only part Winnebago. When the remaining settlers (of this period in time) spoke with the author they had quite a few facts incorrect. That said, much of the book is faithful to the actual history and settling of Rockton and anyone interested in history of the Winnebago area will enjoy this book thoroughly.
