"A cogent, well-documented, handsomely designed treatment of a heretofore forgotten hero of labor."

"The author may be addressing this stirring story of an early union activist—Fannie Sellins (1872-1919)—to middle-schoolers, but the rigor of her approach yields a book with solid scholarly feature."

— Publishers Weekly


"Readers interested in the history of workers’ rights shouldn’t miss this entrée to the subject, which is bolstered by a timeline of labor struggles, source notes, and other resources."

— Booklist

"A useful resource for students researching the violent era of American labor history."
