Undoubtedly the most popular book in American labor history, the I.W.W.'s Little Red Song Book has been a staple item on picket lines and at other workers' gatherings for generations, and has gone through numerous editions. As a result of I.W.W. efforts to keep up with the times, however, recent versions of the songbook have omitted most of the old-time favorites. The steadily mounting interest in Wobbly history warrants this facsimile edition from the union's Golden Age. Ninety years ago these songs were sung with gusto in Wobbly halls, and they're still fun to sing today!
