Hidden America: From Coal Miners to Cowboys, an Extraordinary Exploration of the Unseen People Who Make This Country Work

Summary: 
This remarkable book-- about air traffic controllers and oil rig and sanitation workers and truckers too --taps into a layer of this country that has surged to the fore recently, and lets their voices be heard loud and clear. The dedication to do the best job possible with the job they have makes these speakers admirable above all. No socio-economic analyses, just thought-provoking portraiture.
