Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century

From the beet fields of North Dakota to the National Forest campgrounds of California to Amazon’s CamperForce program in Texas, employers have discovered a new, low-cost labor pool, made up largely of transient older Americans. Jessica Bruder’s Nomadland (W. W. Norton) is a revelatory work of in-depth narrative journalism about a new American workforce and a shift away from retirement as we know it – a compelling, eye-opening tale of the dark underbelly of the American economy.
