Rate this:
In Tracy Daugherty's third novel, childhood innocence and political ambition meet just prior to the First World War in the person of Harry Shaughnessy, an Oklahoma farmer' son. Gifted with a booming speaking voice and a charismatic presence, the boy learns the socialist credo from his father, who takes him on the road-from laborers' camps to county fairs to Oklahoma City-to spread the people's gospel to farmers, miners, and oil workers. Along the way young Harry encounters other socialist crusaders-Eugene V. Debs, Oscar Ameringer, and the dynamic red-haired feminist Kate O'Hare.
