His Family

Front Cover
Book Jungle, 2008 - History - 277 pages
In this 1918 Pulitzer Prize winning story, widower Roger Gale, struggles to deal with the way his children and grandchildren respond to the changing society. His family is the story of a sixty-year-old New York man who reflects on his life and the lives of his three daughters. The women represent three separate types--one, maternal, the second devoted to social movements, and the third living a happy and carefree existence--and the father sees something of himself in each. Ernest Poole was born in Chicago in 1888. He graduated from Princeton and worked as a journalist. He was active in social reforms, especially child labor.
