Workers - An Experiment in Reality: The East
By: Walter A. Wyckoff (1865-1908)
A young scholar, recently graduated from Princeton College, travels across the United States as a member of the working class, taking any job he could find, enduring hardships and struggling to make a living. He travelled mainly on foot, designing for himself a social experiment on experiencing different class and culture structures and the reality of working conditions at the end of the 19th century. This volume covers the Eastern part of the United States. - Summary by Phyllis Vincelli
The second volume The Workers - An Experiment in Reality - the West covers the Western part of the United States.
