Description
This remarkable visual history of the American laborer presents 400 captioned images—sepia, black and white, and hand-colored photographs, as well as engravings, art, and ephemera—portraying wheat growers and sharecroppers, mill girls and housemaids, gold miners and railway porters, farmwives and cowboys, newsboys and stenographers. The former chief historian at Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts, Jack Larkin chronicles the decades between the 1830s and the 1940s, based on diaries and travelers' descriptions, reminiscences and autobiographies, eyewitness accounts and oral histories.

"Every library needs this book.... It is our story—ordinary Americans transforming our country into the envy of the world. All readers will marvel at how hard our forebears worked and will gain a deeper understanding of the nation we have inherited."—Library Journal
