Illustrated with black-and-white photographs. Award-winning author Jerry Stanley tells a true story of the Industrial Revolution and the role women played in the early history of America's labot unions. Annie Clemenc was the wife of a miner in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. When the miners struck in 1913, Annie led them in daily protest demonstrations, only to suffer beatings and imprisonment. But her determination inspired the miners to continue to strike against great odds. Gripping and informative, this is a story that illustrates the experience of the industrial laborers who built modern America.
