Twenty Years at Hull-House : With Autobiographical Notes
"Twenty Years at Hull-House" is Jane Addams's graphic account of her famed settlement house in Chicago's West Side slums. Covering the years from 1889 to 1909, a time when America was fired with fear of subversives and suspicion of foreigners, this book stands as the immortal testament of a woman who lived and worked among the immigrant settlers, the sweatshop toilers, the unwed mothers, the hungry, the aged, the sick, to show them in practice what others merely preached: the true concept of American democracy.
