In this intimate portrait of an unfamiliar America, Pieter ten Hoopen takes us to Hungry Horse, Montana. One in three residents of this small town subsist below the poverty line and most live in trailers and caravans. During extended periods spent here over a period of six years, ten Hoopen discovered great compassion and human warmth in an environment beset by unemployment, drugs and deprivation. The photographs, which have won several prestigious prizes, are accompanied by an essay from Luke Mogelson of the New York Times magazine and a DVD with ten Hoopen's documentary film about Hungry Horse.
