Irish immigrants arrived at the perfect time for Janesville, Wisconsin. They helped to make this small town on the western frontier into a vibrant, successful city. Where Nature Seems to Smile shows us the quintessential American immigration experience, told in stories and family histories by the descendants of those immigrants.
