This is a continuation of
Generations I. The Smith family and
their close knit workers blend as a huge family of different races and
cultures. They struggle to survive
during the harshness of the nineteenth century.
They are prime examples of the early entrepreneurs. The book begins with the venture of hauling
produce and other supplies to the settlers in California
and Oregon. They become involved in the gold rushes. They haul supplies for the Union Army during
the Civil War.
The fortunes of the Smith Clan
are based on the premise that when people treat others as they wish to be
treated, their lives will be blessed, and their lives were blessed. Each character, whether it is one from the
Chinese, Black, Hispanic, Indian, or White race, manages to become
successful. Their success does not come
from luck, it comes from very hard work and a blending
of co-operation from all who are involved.
