Owner Review: From Amazon:

"Another raging slab of real American history you're not likely to find in the textbooks. This is the second title in the new Nabat series from AK Press that debut with Jack Black's You Can't Win. It's a window into a wildly under-appreciated dropout culture that gets left out of the stultifying fairytales that pass for history books - a much more rowdy and messily interesting tradition than the guardians of property, steeped in those other great American traditions of puritanism and hypocrisy, let on.Hobo jungles, bughouses, whorehouses, Chicago's Main Stem, IWW meeting halls, skid rows and open freight cars - these were the haunts of the free thinking and free loving Bertha Thompson. This vivid autobiography recounts one hell of a rugged woman's hard-living depression-era saga of misadventures with pimps, hopheads, murderers, yeggs, wobblies, and anarchists."
