“We don’t know anything about the past and we don’t seem to want to know it. And all the time the people who can tell us about it, make it meaningful, the real repositories of living information, are being lost.”—Studs Terkel

Together, these stories represent an extraordinary panorama of American life and work throughout the century and the ways in which the times have changed.

Coming of Age is a compelling picture of what we have gained through “progress”—and what we have lost.
