Small town America has relentlessly been stereotyped and misunderstood. Through multiple forms of literature and lenses, Rural Voices showcases the truth behind the assumptions, empowering those from no-name towns to embrace their origin.


The diversity in interesting plots and styles are most likely the most compelling aspect of the book. It seems that the goal of Rural Voices is to rid the stereotypes of everything in rural America being boring and often the same. However, with a diverse group of stories, this is easily accomplished. There are stories from all around America, giving insight to multiple ways of life. In addition, the number of different stories enable the book to be much more relatable, as one should easily find themselves relating to at least one story.
