This story is about the resilience of the human spirit,
following three generations of activist families and the author as child
and adult in the context of radical change movements of the twentieth
The constant chant from the author’s mother, “When all the
children in the world are happy, only then do you have a right to be,”
was character defining, as were her many traumatic experiences
growing up during the McCarthy era “witch hunts” of the
1940s and 1950s. History of her grandparents participation in an
educational commune, alternative living styles, and researched labor
union history provides an exciting backdrop.
