MEDIA REVIEWS

[Dale Fetherling's] "tribute to the in-domitable old Irish biddy, who never weighed more than 100 pounds, is thor-oughly documented, eloquent and mov-ing."--Jack Conroy, "Chicago""Sun-Times"


"A human portrait in historical perspec-tive emerges from these pages, as fine a story as anyone who lived an active life for a century could claim, and it is high-ly recommended to all readers of bi-ography, labor history, and Illinois history."

--John H. Keister, "Pennsylvania"" History."


"This book tells all that can be found out about the old woman whom hundreds of thousands of miners called mother and a district attorney called 'the most dan-gerous woman in America.'"--Fred Thompson, "Industrial Worker"

""

"Dale Fetherling... has written a schol-arly portrait which is also a labor of love, ... In this first attempt ever to 'distill her legacy, ' he concludes that 'she may have been the most spectacular woman the country has produced, and she was certainly the most loved and dramatic female in the nation's labor movement.'" --"History"
