New book on the birth of labor and industry in America
Industrial Pioneers:
Scranton, Pennsylvania and the Transformation of America, 1840-1902
by Patrick Brown
Tribute Books announces the release of Industrial Pioneers: Scranton, Pennsylvania and the Transformation of America, 1840-1920 by Patrick Brown. It allows the reader to witness the development of the distinct and interrelated ideologies that defined industrial America.
Visit the book's web site at: http://www.industrialpioneers.com
Book Summary
During the nineteenth century, Scranton was the face of innovation, immigration, industrialization, and a rising America. Scranton was “the electric city” when electricity was the most exciting invention in the world, and a hub of technology and innovation—between 1840 and 1902, the city of Scranton changed from a lazy backwoods community to a modern industrial society with 100,000 residents. During this time, Scranton’s citizens desperately tried to adapt their thinking to keep up with the overwhelming changes around them, and in the process forged the world views that would define the twentieth century. As globalization, technology and immigration transform the United States today, this book revisits how the people the forefront of the industrial revolution moved from chaos to a new order, and how they found meaning within a rapidly changing world.
Periods of total societal transformation often provide the best material for historians. The way that Scranton’s residents reimagined their value within society in response to the changes around them did not evolve in step with technological and economic progress—rather, those living through these changes slowly and painfully adapted extant modes of thinking in light of their new life circumstances. This book weaves a cohesive narrative that explains how Scranton—and America—went from the personal, egalitarian society of the early days of the republic to the rigidly institutionalized society that endures today.
Praise for Industrial Pioneers
My hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania was a cauldron of change and conflict during the period from 1840 to 1900. Patrick Brown's excellent book sheds new light on Scranton's transformation from wilderness to industrial center and the development of our country's earliest labor movements. Perhaps more importantly, it introduces us to the people who drove this process and helps us understand how they thought about their changing world and about themselves."
Robert P. Casey, Jr., United States Senator for Pennsylvania
"Patrick Brown captures the essence societal transformation in the wave of industrial revolution in America in a special place and time. From sleepy cottage industries to a major transportation and manufacturing hub in a region where coal was king, this eloquently presented and illustrated history of Scranton chronicles the rise of people of substance and power juxtaposed against the common laborer all clamoring through a paradigm shift in society unknown to people less than a generation before."
Courtney B. Wilson, M.A.
Director, Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum
in association with the Smithsonian Institution
Patrick Brown Bio
Patrick Brown was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He graduated Magna cum Laude from Georgetown University, where he won the Morris Medal for best senior history honors thesis. He currently teaches high school social studies in the Mississippi Delta through Teach for America.

Children's Titles
Second Chance: How Adoption Saved a Boy with Autism & His Shelter Dog
PBS Kids recommended title
Over the past 10 years, author Sandra Gerencher has been on a mission to save dogs from high-kill animal shelters. Her first rescue was P.J., the black and white Pomeranian in the story. She also adopted the orange Pomeranians Shelby and Lil Rascal, and of course, Chance, the big black Rottweiler/German Shepherd mix. All characters in the story are based on Sandra's real life family. The book is filled with softly blended watercolor photos of her loved ones. Her most significant adoption was her son, Terry. He was considered a special needs child because he was born with a genetic disorder known as Fragile X Syndrome. The disorder can cause many cognitive disorders, such as autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, mental retardation and depression.

Great Gift


Stocking stuffer, affordable holiday gift


My memoir, Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker is a fun and indulgent read into the life of a real Beverly Hills Matchmaker. Women of all ages will love this book. And it makes a great gift.

Welcome to the world of Marla Martenson. The Cupid of Beverly Hills, she has introduced countless couples who have gone on to get married and live happily ever after—so far. But for every success story, there are more dating disasters, high-maintenance clients, out-of-touch men (and women), and downright comical situations with which she has to contend. In Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker, Marla takes her readers for a hilarious romp through her days in an exclusive L.A. matchmaking agency and her daily struggles to keep her self-esteem from imploding in a town where looks are everything and money talks. From juggling the demands her out-of-touch clients and trying her best to meet the capricious demands of an insensitive boss to the ups and downs of her own marriage with a Latin husband who doesn’t think that she is “domestic” enough, Marla writes with charm and self-effacement about the universal struggles that all women face in their lives. Readers will laugh, cringe, and cry as they journey with her through outrageous stories about the indignities of dating in Los Angeles, dealing with overblown egos, vicariously hobnobbing with celebrities, and navigating the wannabe-land of Beverly Hills. In a land where perfection is almost a prerequisite, even Marla can’t help but run for the Botox every once in a while.

Children's Fitness Books


Books that motivate young children to read and exercise simultaneously

I would like to pitch my books from my "An Adventure In Exercise" for your holiday gift guide. These books make exercise fun, while teaching children about number recognition, and reading. The books star Joey the Kangaroo and Spunky the Monkey, who are lovable characters that children will love. The web site for the books is located at: www.fitkidsbooks.com I hope you may consider my books for your guide. Thank you. Len Saunders
