    I recommend this book as interesting reading.

    This book is very interesting and packed with activities. It does take us into the "hidden America". I suspected blueberry pickers didn't have a good life and this book validated my suspicions. I knew very little about coal mines. The chapter named "The Rig" has put some suspicion in my mind though about the amount of hyperbole contained in this book, especially in this chapter. I don't believe anyone like TooDogs could ever hold a job anywhere. And it constains a technical error. She said that there are 56 days of the year without sunshine. That would be 28 days on each side of the winter solstice: From Thanksgiving to Jan. 18. She calls these 56 days "the dead of winter", and mid February "mid-death"! By mid February the sun has been back for several hours a day. So skip that chapter if you don't want to read erroneous information, but read the rest of the book! It's very informative and entertaining.
