In the 1970s, Americans re-discovered rural areas, and in increasing numbers, settled there. It seems that many people want to be where previous generations wanted to be who.
With the resettlement of rural areas, the diversity and distinction of the former rural America has faded. The outlines will remain wide, but many details will disappear.
This book is recorded and explained in detail where it was presented by Calvin L. Bill, a senior demographer at the US Department of Agriculture since the late 1950s.
Bell dedicated his professional career - and also much of his free time - to studying rural areas and their inhabitants. Since the 1950s, he has studied places that most American urban residents have not seen and know: the Mississippi Delta, the Ozark-Ochita Heights, Abattalachia, Corn, Cotton, Tobacco, and Peanut Belts.
His remarks and interpretations provide an unusual "taste" for this country and current trends of change. Peter A.
Morrison compiled the most insightful Bell's writings in the country's sub-regions and on how rural people live for their lives. The passages provide factual information that enriches the image of the author in transformations in rural America.
In his writings, the chapters highlight four aspects of the section and the diversity of rural areas: regional situations, towns, communities, peoples, and transformations taking place in these three areas. "For generations in our national life, progress has been immune to cities," Bell wrote in 1981.
Inventions, service standards, methods and social trends were lagging behind in rural areas, and the countryside was a time machine mediated by urban dwellers. We can see the living past, feel nostalgic or superior, as they tend to.

Bell, Department of Population, Department of Economic Research, Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC, where he is now the chief demographer, has focused on rural and regional trends and configurations He is the author or co-author of "Reviving Population Growth in the Untied America of the World," "Rural Development in Perspective," and US Economic Zones..
