Many people in rural America lived that life until well into the 20th century. Having electricity is one thing; knowing how to use it is another. Most only received electricity by choosing to work together with their neighbors and participate in electrical cooperatives, or co-ops for short. By the 1920s most cities and towns in America received electricity from either privately owned or municipal utility companies. Running wires into the countryside where there might be only a few people per square mile seemed uneconomical for either investors or tax-payers. To help people learn the new technology, REA hired advisors like Louisan Mamer (1910-2005) from southern Illinois.

A history lesson for this generation. Too few are still alive who remember how hard rural life was. Too few remember what groups placed roadblocks in front of the solution in order to further their own profit.

EXCELLENT HISTORY BOOK ON THE ELECTRIFICATION OF RURAL AMERICA. LOTS OF PICTURES.
Knights from Bernin
This book gave me great insight into how the farmer got electricity to his house & what he used it for, plus the working & living conditions before electricity.

I bought a few of these, kept one, and gave the others away to grandparents. They couldn't put it down, it brought back so many memories.

We live in an era that doubts the ability of large scale Government interventions to improve our lives. Rural electrification has been an extremely successful Government intervention that continues to improve the lives of millions world wide - it works.

This is a great book about how politics effected how electricity came to the country, customers, also the hardship on women performing chores without electricity,

Author and photographers give an interesting account of rural homes in the United States and the back-breaking work that people did without electricity, the struggles that occurred to sell the state and federal government officials on the worth of taking electricity to rural homes, and the immediate effects that bringing electricity to rural area had. The story behind the title alone is worth the purchase of the book.
