In the tiny farmtown of Emmett, Idaho, there are two kinds of people: those who leave and those who stay. Those who leave go in search of greener pastures, better jobs, and college. Those who stay are left to contend with thinning communities, punishing government farm policy, and environmental decay. Grace Olmstead is one who left, and in her debut memoir she examines the heartbreaking consequences of her decision - and those of people like her - for heartland America.
