Hard Traveling: A Portrait of Work Life in the New Northwest, University . My book on railroads in the Pacific Northwest is as much about the region itself, from the 1880s to the 1930s, as it is about railroad.

So Incredibly Idaho!: Seven Landscapes That Define the Gem State, University of Idaho Press (Moscow, ID), 1996. Photographs are also central to Hard Traveling: A Portrait of Work Life in the New Northwest, in which Schwantes depicts working life from the 1890s to the early twentieth century. My book on railroads in the Pacific Northwest is as much about the region itself, from the 1880s to the 1930s, as it is about railroad equipment and technology. I grew up fascinated by the trains that ran through my backyard in Greenfield, Indiana.

The nearly two hundred rare and dramatic photographs in this work depict life at work in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Work—often arduous, low paid, and dangerous—defined the region during its period of supercharged development from the 1880s to the 1920s. A final section records work during the depression and war years in the 1930s and 1940s. Complementing the photographs are statements by workers themselves, government analysts, and later observers. The author's essays and commentary on the photographs demonstrate, that, from the beginning of U.S. control, wage labor was crucial to integrating the Pacific Northwest into national and international networks of trade, commerce, and industry. The development of lumber, mining, fishing, railroad, and service industries in the New Northwest marked the transformation of the region from an isolated periphery to a functioning component of the world economy and culture. Schwantes also deals with the tension between the supposed freedom and individualism of the frontier West on the one hand and the constraints of wage labor as practiced in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries on the other. This tension gave rise to an often militant trade unionism and political radicalism that was particularly marked in the Northwest.
I love Mercedes
I am a railroad modeller. This book is great for researching the architecture, industries and modes of dress that existed during the times I wish to model. It is a terrific research resource.

One of those books that just puts you in the time and place. A great perspective on labor in an important region of the country. A must for those interested in American expansion and our history.
