From the Publisher"Denison, Iowa is a work of prophetic journalism — Sherwood Anderson channeling Garcia Marquez in Jack London's voice. Maharidge has captured an epic story of profound cultural change in one midwestern town, rooted in the nation's indigenous past, coming of age in the Pax Americana of Donna Reed, transforming itself once again today as Latinos find a new home — en el mero centro de America. What emerges is a moving, cautionary tale for American times to come."
— John Phillip Santos, author of Places Left Unfinished at the Time of Creation, National Book Award Finalist
"If you want to find out what much of small-town rural America is all about, read this book. Dale Maharidge lifts the lid to a simmering stew of racism, greed, isolation, gossip, and — yes — true American spirit. Maharidge nails it all in Denison, Iowa."
— Stephen G. Bloom, author of Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America
