The Good Old Days - They Were Terrible!:

The Good Old Days - They Were Terrible! By: Otto L.Bettmenn
Non-Fiction: History 197 pages

This book is on the Gilded Age and why life back then was horrible.  It covers many areas of life like houses, work, crime, food, health,travel and leisure.  You learn about the dangers of crossing a road, when the word smog was created, and why anything you ate or drank would kill you.  It is amazing that anyone lived to die in WWI.
