White Trash – Book Review

White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America

2 out of 5 stars

DNF at page 99.

Let me just say that this book is highly informational, that’s not the issue. It was just SO boring. I could not read it for any longer than 15 minute stints or I did not absorb any information because my brain wandered away.
I’ll elaborate a little more than I did on Goodreads. The main thing I found interesting/learned was that, much like Australia, America was founded by sending what the British considered their ‘waste people.’ Convicts, indentured servants and vagabonds.
