Plain Facts   By:

Book cover

Plain Facts by G.A. Bauman is a thought-provoking and eye-opening book that delves into the often overlooked world of rural America. With insightful anecdotes and well-researched statistics, Bauman paints a vivid picture of the challenges faced by rural communities, shedding light on the struggles they encounter on a daily basis.

One of the book's greatest strengths is Bauman's ability to intertwine personal narratives with cold, hard facts. Through interviews and personal experiences, the author brings to life the hopes, dreams, and fears of the people who inhabit rural towns. This human element adds a layer of emotional depth to the book and keeps readers engaged throughout.

Bauman also approaches the topic with an objective and unbiased perspective. While highlighting the many difficulties rural America faces, such as unemployment, lack of healthcare, and limited educational opportunities, the author also explores the resilience and strength of these communities. This balanced portrayal helps the reader not only empathize with the struggles but appreciate the unique qualities and inherent beauty of rural America.

Furthermore, Bauman carefully analyzes the disparity between urban and rural areas, examining the socio-economic and political factors that perpetuate the divide. The author's research is evident as he presents a comprehensive overview of the issues at hand, providing insightful analysis without overwhelming the reader with jargon.

Another aspect that makes Plain Facts stand out is the author's solution-oriented approach. Rather than simply highlighting the problems, Bauman proposes realistic and practical solutions to address the challenges faced by rural communities. Understanding that a one-size-fits-all approach won't work, he emphasizes the significance of tailored and localized solutions that take into account the unique characteristics of each individual community.

One minor drawback of the book is its occasional repetition of ideas. While the author's intention may be to reinforce important points, at times it feels unnecessary and slightly redundant. However, this is a minor flaw in an otherwise well-crafted and engaging book.

In summary, Plain Facts by G.A. Bauman is a must-read for anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the struggles faced by rural America. Bauman's ability to combine personal narratives with factual analysis creates a compelling narrative that is educational, empathetic, and hopeful. As the book suggests, by acknowledging and addressing the challenges rural communities face, we can work towards a more equitable and inclusive society.

The several short articles herein contained were first written and published twenty five years ago as an expression of the writer's convictions.

Having come to the conclusion that conditions, in many respects, have not improved in fact have become more alarming; and in consequence the future outlook in these most strenuous and extravagant times more uncertain, the writer was prompted to incorporate these ideals in a booklet and dedicate the same to his younger friends.

Looked at From a Practical Standpoint

It is the young man and young woman of to day, with a practical education, who will adorn our best homes of the future.

It is the manager and the financier who is the practical one.

It is the young man with good habits who has a bank account, who shows evidence of becoming a financier.

It is the young woman who trains herself with the duties of home work, that will become a manager.

It is the observing, the prudent, who will be the practical one.

The majority of our young friends of to day are beginning at the wrong end. Instead of beginning at the bottom and training themselves for the future, thereby making accumulations by steadily and patiently adhering to one principle, never deviating truthfully and honestly from the one purpose, and in addition establishing a good character, they begin, as it were, at the top, with ideas that are only acquired by lack of proper training, and in course of time find themselves where they should have begun years before...
