Informative. But boring. I confess that half the time I wasn't paying any attention, and I skimmed most pages. Not exactly an attention-grabber for those who aren't naturally inclined to history. ( )

This is a story about a girl named Annie Clemenc who was a worker during the Industrial Revolution. The story goes in detail of the strike, her working hours, and struggles she undertook. This is a great book for students who are learning about the Industrial Revolution and even beeter getting it from someone who had lived through the hardships. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0517700972, Hardcover)

In 1913, miners in Calumet, Michigan, fought to a bitter stand-off with the powerful C & H Mining Company. An inspiration for many strikers was the wife of a Croatian miner, Annie Clemec. At 6-foot-2 inches, "Big Annie" led marches seven days a week over the months of the strike, carrying a "massive American flag on a 10-foot staff." Protesting the brutal working conditions, low pay, and the fact that "on average, one worker a week died in the mines, and two were crippled for life every day" at Calumet, Annie's dedication won the hearts and attention of many citizens and newspapers, who in turn backed the striking miners. A book for intense teens who might want to change the world.
