Hidden America: From Coal Miners to Cowboys, an Extraordinary Exploration of the Unseen People Who Make This Country Work
Hidden America: From Coal Miners to Cowboys, an Extraordinary Exploration of the Unseen People Who Make This Country Work. In addition to the jobs in the subtitle, Laskas devotes chapters to a wide range of others including: landfill workers, cheerleaders, oil rig workers, truck drivers, the air traffic controllers at La Guardia, gun shop workers and migrants at a labor camp in Maine. Each chapter stands well on its own and provides snippets into the lives of people that Laskas spent time with on the job. Laskas is a talented writer, and the glimpses she provides for readers into the people she presents in this book introduce us to lives that are not typically part of our daily experience. Rating: Three-star (Recommended) Click here to purchase Hidden America from amazon.com.
