Each chapter offers copious detail and fascinating narrative about children's lives. The reader can learn about all of the topics in a particular era or focus on one topic and follow it through the decades. Topics discussed range from events of historical significance to cultural fads: from the teddy bear to the Barbie doll, from child labor in sweatshops to teenage workers at McDonald's, from the one-room schoolhouse to the SATs, and from childhood scourges to the eradication of many childhood diseases. Growing Up in Twentieth-Century America will be invaluable to social studies and American history teachers, librarians, and students. The many tables and statistics included in the book will aid the reader and researcher. Each chapter concludes with a narrative bibliography of recommended works of interest on the topics discussed, and a selection of photos complement the text

Mining frontiers of the Far West, 1848-1880 by Rodman W Paul( Book )

9 editions published between 1963 and 2001 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long out of print, this study of western mining is now available with three new chapters by Elliott West. When originally published in 1963, Professor Paul's book offered the first comprehensive view of western mining as an integral part of the settlement process. In his supplemental chapters, Professor West presents a social history of mining camps - encompassing discussions of gender, class, race, labor, and the environment. The combined scholarship of Paul and West makes a strong case for the transforming effects of the mining frontier on western society in particular and American society in general. This revised, expanded edition continues to offer a distinctively vivid voice and an unusually keen eye for telling detail."--Jacket

Often thought of as a primitive backwoods peopled by rough hunters and unsavory characters, early Arkansas was actually productive and dynamic in the same manner as other American territories and states. In this, the second volume in the Histories of Arkansas, S. Charles Bolton describes the emigration, mostly from other southern states, that carried Americans into Arkansas; the growth of an agricultural economy based on cotton, corn, and pork; the dominance of evangelical religion; and the way in which women coped with the frontier and made their own contributions toward its improvement.
