(p.3) Chapter 1 Growing Up Concerned

This chapter argues that what Jencks learned as a result of exploration was the hard lesson that his region had been the site of sharp labor-management confrontation in the rugged mining districts of frontier Colorado. As his awareness of historical inequities sharpened, the trajectory of what was to be an eventful life as an advocate of social justice was set in motion. Jencks' long life in the human rights movement reflected these early perceptions of the world in which he lived and the culture of which he was a product. It was also this regional growth that in the late nineteenth century had once attracted his forebears to a developing mining community, service center, health resort, and railroad junction.
