Overview

Plain Folk: The Life Stories of Undistinguished Americans / Edition 1

Plain Folk depicts both the ordinary occupations and ethnic and racial diversity of America at the turn of the century. But, unlike the reportorial studies by such people as Jacob Riis or the settlement house reports of Jane Addams, Plain Folk presents the actual voices of the working class, untouched by the worldview of reformers, unchanged by the eyes of academics.
