Description

"From the end of the Civil War until her death in 1930 at the age of 100, Mary Harris "Mother" Jones was a tireless fighter for the working class."

"Much of her efforts went into the great battles to organize the United Mine Workers of America. Throughout the coalfields of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado< Alabama, and elsewhere, she joined with miners facing cops and troops, hired gun thugs and special deputies, judges and prosecutors, bringing to bear the power of the union. Today Mother Jones remains a symbol of struggle for miners and their supporters in their ongoing battles against the coal bosses." - BOOK JACKET
