Widely considered the most dangerous drug in the world, crystal methamphetamine is cheap, long-lasting, and very effective. Nowhere is this drug taking hold faster than in the rural cities and towns of middle America, where depressed local economies and an out-migration of population have left small towns struggling to survive. In "Methland," journalist Nick Reding draws from four years research in Oelwein, Iowa, population 6,126, to present a vivid, detailed account of the meth epidemic sweeping the heartland and the ordinary people affected by it. More than just the story of one town's struggle, this is a gripping look at a drug that threatens to destroy small-town America.
