Back in his broken hometown, LeDuff searches through the ruins for clues to its fate, his family's, and his own. Once the richest city in America, Detroit is now the nation's poorest. It is an eerie and angry place of deserted factories and abandoned homes and forgotten people. LeDuff sets out to uncover what destroyed his city, and shares an unbelievable story of a hard town in a rough time filled with some of the strangest and strongest people our country has to offer.

For anyone who has ever visited, or is going to visit, Detroit, I recommend reading this book-- preferably before you go. LeDuff captures the despair and the strength as well as the overwhelming challenges in the Motor City.

EXCELLENT look (or dust over, they're so complex) at the problems in the rust belt that will eventually spread to everyone else.
