"Among the most stirring works of labor history ever written, this autobiography of Mother Jones (ňe Mary Harris) chronicles the life of a woman who was considered a saint by many, and by others, "the most dangerous woman in America." A forceful and picturesque figure in the American labor movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Mother Jones was a born crusader. Widowed at the age of 30 when her husband and four young children died during a yellow fever epidemic, Mother Jones spoke out tirelessly and effectively for the rights of workers and unionists. She played a significant role in organizing mining strikes in West Virginia and Colorado, as well as the Pittsburgh steel strike of 1919. She was instrumental in the formation of the United Mine Workers union (UMW) in 1890 and the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) in 1905."--From publisher

Addressing the camera, Mother Jones states, "I've spent years of my life working for ... labor, to her power, and when she wins, men and women both, there will come a new civilization, a civilization that Christ handed down to man. You know, I am considered a Bolshevik and a Red ... and a radical, and I admit to being all they've charged me with. I'm anything that will change this monied civilization to a higher and grander civilization for the ages to come. And I long to see the day when labor will have the destinies of the nation in her own hands, and that she will stand a united force and show the world what the workers can do."
