Summary
Takes a look at the decade in America when demonstrations were commonplace and traditional values were questioned and presents American history through the eyes and ears of everyday Americans. Representing all classes, dozens of occupations, and all regions of the country, this book includes 30 profiles of individuals and families--their life at home, on the job, and in their neighborhood--with lots of photos and historical images of the time, including the African American in Washington, D.C. who taught himself how to win a gold medal for weight lifting in the 1960s Olympics, to the Nashville country music record producer who signed Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, and Chet Atkins
