Starting with Harriet Hanson, an 11-year-old leader of the 1836 Lowell mill strike, and ending with the Lawrence mill strike of 1912, the book tells the personal stories—some shocking, some heartbreaking, and many inspiring—of New England cotton mills, boys and girls in Pennsylvania coal mines, big-city garment industries, Mother Jones, and the New York City rent strike of 1907. Illustrated with more than 100 period photographs (including some by Lewis Hine).
