From Amazon review: Here is an early work of Dorothy Day, who tells the story of her conversion from Communist journalist to Catholic Worker.

This was a very good, slim volume on her life. It does not hold all the details like her autobiography, rather it is a overview-telling of the journey she took. Very good.

In the 1930s, Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker movement, a nonviolent, pacifist movement that continues to combine direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf.
