Recommends it for: middle school teachers with an eye to easy social justice history
This is certainly not her autobiography (which I have heard is a pretty wild read); Atkinson's book is a young-adult friendly recapitulation of MoJo's struggles throughout Appalachia and in the mining towns of the West (primarily Colorado). Good as introduction -- not so good as substantive research.

This was my book for Gnostic in January, so I got an early start. Very interesting woman, though this is not a true autobiography of her life, but more of an introduction. Amazing lady.
