In Pennsylvania’s rough-and-tumble coal country, a young idealist tries to organize the miners. Anderson’s second major novel, published in 1917, is dedicated to American workingmen and chronicles their plight in industrial society. Anderson, once manager of a paint factory and later a fierce critic of industrialization, offers a lyrical meditation on prospects for social improvement.
