Fred Bower had a full, adventurous life and wrote about it in his own vivid and racy idiom. He was born in Boston in 1871 and brought up in Liverpool. His travels and his work took him throughout the United Kingdom and North America, not to mention time spent tramp-steaming all the way to Australia and back. He combined the stonemason’s craft with diverse activities such as prospecting for gold and working for the Labor Movement, in which he interacted with the likes of Francisco Ferrer, Victor Grayson, Jim Larkin, Tom Mann, Philip Snowden, and others. Mr. Bower has a definite flair for telling a story, and the varied life he led makes Rolling Stonemason a thoroughly enjoyable autobiography and a genuine piece of natural writing.

About the Author:

Fred Bower was born in Boston in 1871, of English parents. He was a stonemason and a socialist who traveled throughout England and North America as a journeyman mason, while organizing strikes and speaking at street corners. His autobiography, written in his spare time, was discovered by Mr. John Brophy.

Review:

This is an autobiography as rich in character as the man himself. Mr. Bower has a definite flair for telling a story, and the varied life he has led makes this a thoroughly enjoyable book. From The Spectator, July 1936
