Letter from My Neck of the Woods

Out Here in the Sticks, by Bill Hatch. Hatch, who I have never heard of before, lives in Merced, California. He gives you a pretty good feel of this part of California, the severe poverty, the rural nature of the landscape, the severe ignorance of the population, the huge Mexican illegal alien population, the Punjabis who run the local stores and gas stations, the working class Whites barely struggling to get by, the failed real estate boom, and last, the fundamentalist Christian nature of the local White population. If you want to know what it’s like where I live, this gives you a nice little feel.
