The rich, warmly humorous, and honest memoir of Harriet Hanson Robinson, who went to work in the cotton mills of Lowell, Massachusetts, at the age of ten, in 1835. Her account is one of the true classic of America's coming of age, and one of the few records that we have of the working woman in the early nineteenth century. Includes an Index.
