Summary
The hilarious, charming, and candid story of Ingraham's decision to uproot his life and move his family to Red Lake Falls, Minnesota, population 1,400--the community he made famous as "the worst place to live in America" in a story he wrote for the Washington Post.
Chris and Briana Ingraham were having a difficult time making ends meet as they tried to raise their twin boys in the East Coast suburbs. When he stumbled upon a ranking of America's 3,000+ counties from ugliest to most scenic, he scrolled to the bottom of the list and wrote the words "The absolute worst place to live in America is (drumroll please) ... Red Lake County, Minn." The story went viral, and the residents of Red Lake County challenged him to actually visit their community. Here he tells of experiencing the intensity and power of small-town gossip, his struggles to find a decent cup of coffee, winters with temperatures dropping to forty below zero, and some truths about small-town life that the coastal media usually miss. -- adapted from jacket.
