really liked it
Recommended for: Young adults with time to make a change.

This current 2007 book accurately describes many of the poorest in Winchester, Virginia. It applies to others in Applachia.Chapter seven, about our health care system and description of what happens to persons in government supported nursing homes is especially scarry. Chapter three, "the mortgage racket will.." changed in November 2008, but explains what caused one aspect of the present economic situation. Depressing in its descriptions, it may motivate young people to pursue another path. Young people have time for even tiny efforts in education and investing to pull them out or prevent poverty.
