Cruel Years by William Loren Katz

Book Description

The Cruel Years offers readers a poignant and candid glimpse of the turmoil, oppression, and injustice of American life in the early 1900s told by twenty-two working women and men who, through their short narratives, reveal the resiliency of their lives in the face of unimaginable horrors. The book features vivid accounts of the struggle to survive among the poor and powerless: a native American tries to preserve his identity against incredible odds, a coal miner warns of lethal dangers, and a sweatshop girl tries to enjoy life.
