By Sean Connolly, Brendan January (Joint Author)


What was it like to be a child worker in 1700? What was it like to invent the steamboat? What was it like to be a witness to history? Step back in time to the Industrial Revolution and see history through the eyes of those who lived it. Find out how it felt to work nineteen hours a day in a textile factory-at the age of eleven. Hear what it was like to be the first person to send words across the world by telephone. Discover the horrors of life in an overcrowded industrial city during a revolutionary time that brought great poverty as well as great riches.
