Joliet once was a lush prairie bordered with scenic bluffs along the Des Plaines River. In the late 19th century, settlers and a large influx of Eastern European immigrants arrived, transforming the area into a bustling industrial community of steel, limestone, manufacturing, and transportation. In the 20th century, Joliet transformed itself from an industrial hub to a destination of entertainment and tourism. Tourism thrives as people visit the National Hot Rod Association drag strip, NASCAR track, two casinos, the JackHammers minor-league baseball team and baseball stadium, a water park, the historical museum, and library. Joliet depicts the rich cultural heritage impressed on the city and shows how the people lived and worked together, earning Joliet the title of All-American City in 1955 by the National Municipal League and Look magazine.

I bought this for my dad as a gift, but I ended up reading it cover-to-cover before I gave it to him. He loves it, as did I! He has about 10 pages bookmarked, probably because he knows the people, picture, event, etc. I'm sure it was a nice walk down memory lane for him. What a great book, and a great gift for anyone who has ever lived in the Joliet area.

Reading this book is like taking a personal tour of Joliet -- and not just to see the sites and the buildings. I was touched by the author's up front and personal style and how she introduced me to the people who built the community. Usually a history book shows photo after photo of schools, stores, public events.... But in "Joliet," Wolf seems to step into the past - to provide a more poignant look at the individuals in the photos. She provides readers with personal details about the lives of the people who built the buildings, the men and women who started neighborhood businesses and schools, and who became community leaders. "Joliet" is a story of how immigrants - men and women - came to this country, raised their families and realized the American dream, while still preserving their ethnic heritages.

The history of Joliet mirrors the growth of many other communities around our country that were built with hard work, dedication, and gratitude for the freedoms that are so easy to take for granted. It is a history lesson written from the heart of someone who truly understands how important diversity and community strength is to the growth of America. "Joliet" is also a message from the author, who grew up in Joliet, to remember our past and to use it as a foundation for the future.

"Joliet" teaches us about a fascinating town in Middle America where immigrants settled and made a home for themselves while carrying the torch of liberty. Marianne Wolf has researched the past to provide a timely lesson for the present and for future generations. The images of the people in this pictorial history cry out for readers to understand the plight of the immigrants who come to America to build better futures for themselves and their families. This book is about freedom and opportunity, and individuals whose love and respect for their heritage - and for America -blended together to build a stronger Nation for all of us. ( Jerry Marcus is widely known for his ability to create compelling fiction about thought-provoking issues such as anti-Semitism, political intrigue, corruption, and religious hypocrisy. He is the author of three books: "The Last Pope," "The Salvation Peddler," and "Abraham, Isaac, Jacob & Zev.")

First, let me say that I am not from Chicago. So why read this book you might ask? Because I heard of this book from the author whom I met at BookExpo America...the national trade show for the book publishing industry. So, I decided that I would order the book simply so I could tell her that I had read it.

Now I am glad I did. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed the book.

To some, Joliet may merely be a micocosm of Chicago, but I found it to be much more than that. It is also a story of people, of individuals and of micro-communities, that can probably be paralleled to other communities in other urban areas. What make Joliet unique is the depth of the research that the author put into the telling of its individual stories of struggle, of sorrow, and of accomplishment. The uniqueness of Joliet may be in its strong church ties and in its architecture of structures and of its peoples, but the stories of the history and of the people of this area are quite interesting...and make for a very interesting read.

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who understands that by knowing more about the history and lives of others gives greater insight into ourselves. This book will both make you think and entertain you as well...that, in and of itself, is quite unique. I enjoyed it and think that you will too.
