Homesickness in America

"Soldiers, conscripts, African American slaves sold away from their families, American Indians incarcerated in government boarding schools, wives of IBM ladder-climbers, the displaced victims of urban renewal, homesick pioneers and immigrants and country boys adrift in the city" are the subjects of a book reviewed by Bill Kauffman, who begins by saying, "Mobility is the great undiagnosed sickness afflicting America" — Don’t It Make You Wanna Go Home Now?
