The book spans the twentieth century in nine epochs, individually introduced by essays from notable children's writers, including Katherine Paterson, Jane Yolen, Avi, Robert Cormier, Lois Lowry, Frederick and Patricia McKissack, Jerry Spinelli, Gary Paulsen, and Cynthia Rylant. Featured in each section is a description of an event or trend that began during that era, and each section closes by recalling some memorable individuals who died during that time. The worlds of politics, science and technology, and the arts, as well as the lives we led at home and at work -- all are explored and captured brilliantly within these pages.
