    • Books

This is a short review of the book Nomadland: Surviving America in the 21st Century, by Jessica Bruder, a look at the emerging nomadic workforce used by companies such as Amazon. These are mostly older adults who live in vans and recreational vehicles while working at temporary jobs around the country. This book highlights a lifestyle that's free and hopeful on the one hand and difficult and tragic on the other. As more and more people are being forced out of conventional employment and compelled to work into their 60s and beyond, the kind of nomads depicted in this book will only become more numerous.
