The Industrial Revolution in America produced its share of giants—Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, George Eastman, and many others. The Industrial Revolution for Kids gives readers the opportunity to appreciate the greatness of the people who propelled America into the industrial age. In addition to the celebrities of the time, readers will meet women and men who worked 14-hour days in meat packing plants, 10-year-old mine workers, union organizers, cartoonists, social activists, and Owney—the rail riding canine postal worker.


Ages 9 and up.
