The lure of the west that Europeans had a felt since the first set foot on America’s Eastern shore infected new Englanders like a fever by the 1830s. For six generations the Kelloggs had resisted it as they developed extensive landholdings in the rich valley of the Connecticut River.

But change was in the air as the seventh son of a father burdened withdebt, John Preston Kellogg realistically decided that his future would be brighter hundreds of miles to the west of Hadley, Massachusetts, the family residence for nearly 200 years.

It is the first part of Book ‘John Harvey Kellogg’

Could you please paraphrase that bold phrase? Thanks a lot!
