Lewis as CIO editor and press chief in 1935, Len De Caux rode the rails as a working Wobbly. This book recaptures the tension and excitement of the labor battles which swept across our country in the early years of the twentieth century. Big Bill Haywood and Vincent St. John (the Saint), Mother Jones and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn (the Rebel Girl), Joe Ettor and dozens of other fabulous "red-carders" come to life as we travel with them into mines and lumber camps, textile sweatshops and harvest-ripe fields as they battle to organize 'the working stiffs.""
