My grandmother Mabel Mangan is featured in this book, it is a great historical piece written in segments that detail several of the Mill Worker's lives and how they perceived the day to day life that was their reality. Even though I am a bit biased, the book is very well written. The boot mills are no longer in operation but there is a mill museum with a few still in operation.

It wasn't many generations back that my forebears came from French Canada to seek a better life by working in the mills of Lawrence, Mass.
This thoughtful history was almost like living in their shoes.
