really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction

This is a fascinating look at those who seem so defined by the place they live, that leaving it is almost unthinkable. Mr. Halpern looks at several places which are less than ideal areas to call home, due to the frequency of natural disasters, or are quite secluded. My favorites were the man whose home is surrounded by lava from an erupting volcano and, the town of Whittier, AK (which is basically made up of a large apartment building).
