In early 1968, Senator Robert F. Kennedy ventured deep into the heart of Eastern Kentucky to gauge the progress of President Lyndon Johnson's War on Poverty. Author Matthew Algeo meticulously retraces RFK's tour of the region, visiting the places he visited and meeting with the people he met, and explains how and why the region has changed since 1968, and why it matters for the rest of the country.
