[Review] Habits of the Heartland: Small-Town Life in Modern America
This article reviews the book Habits of the Heartland: Small-Town Life in Modern America by Lyn C. MacGregor. Based on Lyn C. MacGregor's dissertation at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Habits of the Heartland is an ethnographic study of Viroqua, a small town approximately 4,000 residents in southwestern Wisconsin.

MacGregor comes across as a trustworthy guide to Viroqua, and the book is well written and genuinely edifying. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc78295/
