The Boys in the Bunkhouse: Servitude and Salvation in the Heartland
The Boys in the Bunkhouse: Servitude and Salvation in the Heartland, Barry relates the life stories of a group of intellectually challenged individuals who were exploited by an employer for decades. A lesser writer might have presented the exploitation as evil, but Barry presents the exploiters as complete characters, with intentions and behaviors that were the usual mix of self-centeredness and helping others. This is a sad story that Barry tells with compassion and insight. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Boys in the Bunkhouse from amazon.com.
