"Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living!" These were the fighting words that guided Mary Harris Jones (1830?-1930), and inspired lesser known heroines of the American labor movement (e.g. Sellins, Lewis, and Roche). This volume includes interviews with women currently working in the coal mines (the industry Mother Jones helped unionize); illustrations; and a foreword by Linda Chavez-Thompson, the first woman of color to hold executive office in the AFL-CIO.
