Is This Trip Necessary? Packing for the Journey. Babies and Children: Born There. Teenagers: Living in the Well. Working Hard, Hardly Working. Parents: Building the New Generation. Old and Poor: Where You Are Is Where You Stay. Journey's End.
When the acclaimed author of "Where Is Nicaragua?" went in search of America's growing underclass— the persistent poor— he discovered a frighteningly large segment of the population for whom our cherished notions of equal opportunity and freedom for all are nothing but a mockery. Told in starkly human terms, courageous and compassionate, "If You Came This Way" is Peter Davis's shattering sojourn among our hopelessly impoverished fellow Americans ... young and old, victims and vagabonds, the struggling unemployed and the simply unemployable. Their strengths and weaknesses, fears and anxieties, needs and desires will surprise and haunt you.
