The interviews and photos concentrate on people with poor opinions of the USA. It seems that Lauri Lyons went out of her way to find the dregs of society to interview and photograph. There are many negative and hateful comments about the USA and I can't imagine why any publisher would publish this book.
I believe in the constitution, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. But, why would they print such a tasteless book? This is not real America.
There are some nice exceptions, such as the cowboys in Montana and many old timers. However, there are photos showing people standing on the flag and stories about how people threw the flag she gave them on the ground.
She had a good idea and an excellent theme. She blew it.
