From children who are killers to an elderly woman's last bequest; from State Troopers saving potential suicides on Floridean bridge to an Inmate Rodeo at Angola Prison in Louisiana; here are more than sixty stories by Pultizer Prize winner Rick Bragg showing the sadness and the humanity that exist all around us.This collection showcases Bragg's talent for turning seemingly ordinary situations into extraordinary stories by bringing together his most recent feature articles most of them written for the New York Times. Bragg explores such questions as: What happens to someone released from prison for a crime he didn't commit? Who takes care of the graves of poor people? What keeps an elderly woman from selling her land for a healthy profit? Bragg's curiosity often leads him to society's margins, where he returns with some of the most insightful and poignant journalism we have seen in some time.
