His courage and that of his future wife, Bess, allowed part of the family to grow and prosper in Rockford, an industrial town in north central Illinois, and part to forge different lifestyles in Los Angeles. The children built a $250 million business from a one-truck hauling business, but the grandchildren mostly scattered to new challenges. It wasnt always a smooth journey, but both the family and the communities expanded and the country changed. This is a story about people rising to prominence from modest roots, sometimes facing bigotry and prejudice along the way, but usually banding together with friends and families with other traditions. It is about a tiny portion of a community clinging to religious roots. It is about love, anger, generosity, selfishness, failure, triumph, birth, and death. It is about the qualities that made America.
