They Sawed Up a Storm


There have many many stories told of women stepping into traditional male roles during the Second World War. But this is one I've never heard. Sarah Smith of the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension has written a book called "They Sawed Up a Storm" about women who considered it their duty to keep the local mill running.

Here's an excellent review of the book.

I just received and read my copy of the book. Easy read, and an interesting look into the times. A worthwhile addition to your library...a real conversation starter.
