Editorial Reviews

Review

A provocative analysis of labor, social, and transportation history in our early national period.

(Journal of Southern History)

Extremely valuable... Well conceived, researched, and written.

(Journal of Social History)

Way's study of canal work and workers has filled a major empty spot in economic history.

(Journal of Economic History)

A major addition to the study of North American canals, describing who dug them, how they were dug, and under what conditions of labor.

(American Canals)

From the Back Cover

Composed increasingly of Irish immigrants, Way explains, the work force was housed in hastily built shanty towns along the path of canal construction.
