In 1950, Sam Walton, founder of the Wal-Mart empire, arrived in the Bible Belt town of Bentonville, Arkansas, and discovered that the nondescript Ozarks backwater--population 2,900 white Christians--suited him just fine. Today, six decades later, Walton’s legacy has left its mark. The Bentonville area is headquarters to not only Wal-Mart but also Tyson Foods and J. B. Hunt. The town’s population has grown to around 30,000, and the region is now home to blacks, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Marshall Islanders, and the fastest-growing Latino population in the country.

This is the fourth book in the Geiserts" series on small towns which conveys, through simple text and expressive pictures, the wonder and personality of everyday life in the United States. A desert town, once the end of the line for shipping cattle, is no longer a stopping point for the railroad. The town endures blazing heat throughout the summer months, and everyone must find a way to stay cool. Some do their work at night, some take refuge in the air-conditioned store, and everyone moves at a slow pace. The Geiserts have once again captured the authenticity and essence of small-town Ameri
