America was once full of small, lively places where people produced things. These were factory towns, mill towns, mining towns - places with corner groceries and five-and-dime stores, community churches and neighborhood bars, parades down Main Street, softball games at the town park. Then America changed. Once-proud towns became crowded with vacant storefronts, haunted by empty streets, and populated by a group of wounded people through an odd mixture of anger and resignation, determination and hope. Through touching words and poignant pictures, Steve Mellon takes readers on an unforgettable trip through five communities in rustbelt America - Homestead, Pennsylvania, Braddock, Pennsylvania, Lewiston, Maine, Matewan, West Virginia, and Flint, Michigan. Includes an Index.
