On Our Way to Oyster Bay

Mother Jones and Her March for Children's Rights

Pub Price:

A  moving, fictionalized account of a march that raised awareness about child  labor.

Eight-year-old Aidan and his friend Gussie have joined the picket line at  the cotton mill to demand the chance to go to school instead of work. But  when famous labor reformer Mother Jones arrives, she has an even bolder idea  than a strike. She wants to lead them on a march from Pennsylvania all the  way to President Theodore Roosevelt’s summer home in Oyster Bay, New  York!

This inspiring tale is a tribute to the extraordinary spirit of Mother  Jones, and a testament to the power of standing up for what’s right, no  matter how old you are.
