Dreamland book cover
The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic
Sam Quinones - 2015-04-21
Goodreads Rating
Dreamland tells the riveting story of addiction in small rural towns and suburbs across America. Sam Quinones expertly weaves two tales of capitalism run amok - the unfettered prescribing of pain medications in the 1990s and the massive influx of black tar heroin from Mexico. This devastating collision continues to lay waste to communities across the country. With rich detail and compelling storytelling, Quinones introduces a cast of characters - pharma pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, and parents - revealing the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.
