Abstract:  Dorothy Day, convert to Catholicism, co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, friend to communists, socialists, atheists and life long champion of the poor and dispossessed is the subject of Elaine Stone's book. She traces Day's life as a wild youth through her years embracing various social movements-civil rights, the suffragette movement and non-violent social change. She was one of the most influential lay Catholics in America and became a model to the Berrigans and marched with Chavez. As well Stone also speaks to the drive to have her canonized.
