Cents an Hour is a history of the Fort Peck dam and
spillway construction from 1932-1940. It is an account of
the 18-plus boomtowns that sprang up in the project area;
the Hi-Line towns that furnished rock; and the nearby
incorporated, also-booming towns of Glasgow and Nashua.
In this book you will meet the
thousands of workers, families, tourists, transients, and
others who passed through the project area. You will see how
and where they lived, and how they survived the hard times.
Fifty Cents an Hour
is a history with heart and humor woven into the facts and
figures. It answers the questions: What happened to
those four big barges and all that construction equipment?
Where did the people go? What was in that Life
magazine story? The 225 pages include a Preface, Chronology,
Contents, Maps, Photos, Bibliography, and Index.
