[hardcover edition] This book is about the life of a New England railroad man in the twentieth century, and his engagement in the turmoil of 1960s America, in particular union struggles and his participation in anti-war activism in the small towns of Franklin and Medway, Massachusetts. The author's autobiographical note is succinct: qBorn in the worst of the depression. Grew up in Hyde Park, a neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. Graduated from Hyde Park High in 1951. Thrown out of Boston Latin and left Technical High School voluntarily. Served in the Army like most people of that generation and railroaded for 45 years: Boston Terminal Co. New Haven Railroad, Penn Central and Conrail. qI came from three previous generations of railroaders. Enough is enough.qYou had to get the rear car close enough to the end of the track so the steam could be hooked up to the rear car and thence ... The man Dad had paid to back the Senator around the loop to the yard fell asleep going through the washing machine. ... Unfortunately they had run through a trailing point switch, which caused the points to open up, and when he pulled ahead he put the rear car on the ground.
